David C Mahler – Cosmic Echo, 01:34 mins
Cosmic Echo depicts the flow of energies and by extension the element of consciousness through space, celestial bodies and forms of life. Presented as an infinite loop moving between the micro - the human eye - and the macro – a theoretical vast well of consciousness at the centre of the universe - this piece aims to present the cyclical nature of reality. The first half of the film depicts abstracted representations of creation before reaching the halfway point a mandala of consciousness where the two screens combine for a split second. Both screens then flip and reverse, thus playing out the inevitable destruction.
David animated this piece using a mixture of mediums, including spray paint, digital animation, traditional animation and film. Site specific four channel projection installation Cosmic Echo, created for the Signal Screens Commission 2017, City of Melbourne. Screened at Signal Art Space for the month of September 2017.
Thank you to Freya Pitt, Yandell Walton, Signal and the City of Melbourne.
