“Significant Otherness” by Onesal for Pause 2019

Tokyo studio Onesal is back with more carefully lit CG art in this dramatic one-minute piece for Pause Fest 2019 exploring the “relationship humans have with technology.”

From Onesal: “The divide between humans and machines is getting increasingly narrower. We set off to explore this relationship from an intimate angle. Subtle. Suggestive. Elegant. Powerful.

“We did so by introducing a set of unconnected scenes that indirectly represent what goes on inside one’s body when getting closer, establishing a connection, and finally consummating the union with a significant other. In that case, that significant other is represented by
technology.

“This process leads to feelings and sensations that are inherently human. Attraction, excitement, tension, increased breathing and heart-rate. Every shot was crafted with artificial, almost otherworldly textures and elements.”
