The Dissolution

The Dissolution - Trailer 1 from Ellen Rogers on Vimeo.

Another video for you today! This time it's a trailer from a the short film The Dissolution, a collaboration between photographer Ellen Rogers and artist Prizme:

The Dissolution is a collaborative project between Artists Ellen Rogers and Prizme, the objective of which is to collect a series of mediums, which would normally be consumed separately, into a single entity. Each medium is built around a short film of the same name created by the pair as a keystone of the project. These include a booklet (containing a series of photographs), a full album (containing music from the soundtrack), a fold-out poster all bound together in a weighty black foil-blocked and embossed card.

The drive behind this project is the desire to create something that would allow the viewer to become further immersed in the worlds projected throughout the work of the two separate artists. At the same time the piece serves as a landmark project in the building of a creative partnership that continues to grow.

It's a little bit creepy and a little bit beautiful all at the same time. Just what I've come to love about Ellen Roger's work. I would love to get my hands on a copy of the booklet to examine each photograph up close. Here are a couple of stills from the movie and a couple of frames from the booklet...
