Still Life est une célébration de la beauté du mouvement et de la proximité humaine, réalisé en 2020 pendant la crise et la pandémie covid-19. La vidéodanse est un duo en animation danse 2D composé de pluisieurs centaines de dessins de l'auteur, un moment où le monde s'arretait et les hommes obligés de rester séparés. L'animatrice a décidé de créer une animation au sujet de ce qui nous a manqué le plus pendant le confinement : la liberté de mouvement et celle d'être proche des personnes que l'on aime.
"The last few months have been tough. Like so many of my friends and colleagues I was put on the government's furlough scheme which meant that I suddenly had a lot of time on my hands and not a lot to do with it. So I decided to create an animation which focused on what I missed the most - the freedom to move, and be close to the people I love. Still Life is a celebration of the beauty of movement and human closeness at a time when the world stood still and we were forced to stay apart."
