explication

 

 

In the Poetics of Aristotle, Aristotle seeks to find the true meaning and value of art, ultimately concluding that art embodies the concept of ‘mimesis’; a 'medium of imitation' that attempts to represent or duplicate real life in art. That is the concept of this short film; to make something based off of life in its purest form; emotions. Although, the expression and understanding of emotions is subjective, the ability to experience emotion is innate to the human experience. Therefore, the purpose of the piece is for the viewer to explicate a unique meaning and find their own meaning for the emotions of the character seen on screen.
