A seemingly monotonous cloud layer seen from below can suddenly turn into a spectacular cloudscape when the plane breaks through it. While some people dread the turbulence of breaking through this layer, it is one of my favourite moments during flights. The clouds fly by at peak velocity and reveal their surfaces before the plane slowly rises above them again, at which point the entire cloudscape decelerates.
Touching Clouds is a video collage study exploring the contrast of soft clouds drifting across sharp geometric edges. It aims to recreate this moment of anticipation during a year where I have been bound to work with mostly archived material due to the global pandemic.
Video collage based on videos taken on passenger flights and animation of individual Python-processed video frames based on a scanned set of rubber-stamps.
