The film Suspension shows a figure in an undefined emptiness, wherein the circumstances change from mist or smokiness to bright red to pitch-black darkness. However, it is unclear if the man is floating or falling through this emptiness. At certain times, he seems to resist against his state of being, without success or change. Some other times, he seems to surrender to it or be unaware.
A state of eternity
Through this dream-like state, largely inspired by Moebius’ comic books, that show a spiritual world of fantasy, the Argentine visual artist Sebastian Diaz Morales creates a fantastic allegory for contemporary society.
Since this state seems to be without a beginning or an end, thus, a state of eternity, Suspension creates a new perception of time. In fact, the floating/falling figure holds within the past, present, and future.
Sebastian Diaz Morales manages to involve the audience in his work, recalling in his construction video frames rolling by. They can climb and watch the work from whatever height they prefer.
