Melancholy Lights

Melancholy Lights from DoAn Forest on Vimeo.

(EDIT MORE LATER) About the video: I juxtaposed footage from 1939 World Fair, bombings of Hiroshima/Germany, and a 1946 atomic test. The background is a projection of the earlier Melancholy edit onto an electronic junk sculpture I was making (but subsequently didn’t finish). Also, the fireworks theme. Basically, it’s about human need/love for artificial light, fire, and the destructive darkness of the light we cherish.
