The accompanying stills for Impossible House – an abstract film that follows an animated sphere as it explores a seemingly impossible house, through windows and down stairwells. The narrative takes an Orwellian turn as the ball gets caught in a recess that sees him fall into a pile of other balls, in which we lose sight of our protagonist, our ‘roll’ model. The resulting film offers a landscape that challenges our perceptions of scale, and a low-fi approach to scenic painting and ball ‘blowing’, utilising in-camera tricks as a fresh antidote to digital manipulation.
