Hyperstills Ambient

Hyperstills Ambient is a series of animations that leads the viewer on a mesmerizing, meditative journey through the portals of conscious existence into an abstract world. Exotic forms stretch across the matrix of time and space, leading us to the subtle tissues and textural essences of our cosmic constitution (the embodiment of spirit in matter). Light intersects the void. Fire morphs into wind, into turbulent smoke-infused water, and hints at the secret source of all Elements. Crepuscular strands of essential form, flash-frozen hair and vein-work, limbs and ducts pulsing, awakening to form nebulae intertwinedall unfold in Vega?s indelible new work.
