“Pyramid” Short Film by Ihsu Yoon
South Korean artist and director Ihsu Yoon draws on his architectural schooling for his new personal project, an atmospheric short CG film called “Pyramid”.
Ihsu Yoon: “Pyramids are the ancient monuments where people worshiped their gods. My concept is re-interpreting the pyramid in modern society where individualism is appreciated.
“The concept of the god has been changed and considering oneself as a god has become trendy. People can experience spiritual meditation by climbing up to the top of each stairway.
“On each top, there are the lights on the floor and ceiling which represents their own Sun (the concept of ancient god).
Maybe people can feel themselves directly connected to indescribable power.
“About the installation movement, each stairway is connected with each ring ground and spins by some interacting way with the audiences. By the spin, it eventually shows the extended form of cone or pyramid.
This film is a part of the Asymmetry project, the online format exhibition. The form of this piece shows asymmetry and connection in a surprising way. The center of them seemingly connected by the motion, but not.
“I was super lucky to collaborate with Echoic Audio for the music & sound design. The first pass was just perfect with their magic and became the final.”
