ELEMENTS BY MAXIM ZHESTKOV

by Ariadna Zierold

Elements is an experimental art film by Maxim Zhestkov about nature, physics, art and love. More than 2 billion elements/particles governed by tensions and forces of nature were used to tell stories and show emotions through the motion of collective behavior.

The film is a trial to explore the idea that everything around us and inside us is made from simple elements/blocks which can be arranged in complex relationships and become compound structures. We could project this idea into emotions, behaviors, thought processes, relationships, life, planets and the universe.
