free expression installation

My last assignment for the Dutch Film Academy was called 'Self Presentation'. This task, in which we had about nine days to create an installation, was a chance for free expression.

I wanted to capture the behavior of two entities meeting each other as they float in outer space. Here they start colliding with each other a few times before eventually merging as one by the force of gravity.

The construction in which the galaxies hang consists of two black wooden plates with fishing line vertically attached between them in a parallel grid-like manner. This made it look like the galaxies were actually floating in mid air.
