The Secret 2011

"The Secret" is a project about the meta level of things. It investigates symbolic functions of artefacts which are given by an individual user, owner or a cultural group. The resulted visualised reflexion in the form of an experimental short film tells the story of the fictional religious group of the "Neo-Animists" who believe that every object is possessed by spirits who constantly have to be worshiped and appeased. Objects are considered sacred. Everyday routines such as brushing teeth, going to bed or cooking become elaborate ceremonies.
