Holes (2020-2)

Originally created to be viewed through a peephole, Holes is a short abstract film that hints at an imaginary journey traced by oil pastels, white spirit, milk, ink, detergent, lipstick and pomegranates using hand drawing, fingers, After Effects and a microscopic camera.

The soundtrack was designed by Anat Ben-David.
