Chasm is an experimental short made throughout the Covid-19 pandemic. A direct and personal response to the crisis. The sculptor's environment represents a haunting and isolated world from which we have all been temporarily excluded. A world without people in which geometric shapes, light and colour, take on their own meaning and serenity. The slow building discordant sound design is like a virus taking form, threatening to unbalance the visual harmony.
