Elektra

Metahaven’s first work for a planetarium: a cinematic merger of animation and live action that reflects on childhood and the embodiment of the past in the present, a visual essay on nodes and nets.

“Every person exists as both an ancestor and a successor.” In “Elektra”, Metahaven create a parable about the planetary dome in which the film will be projected. The dome’s semi-sphere enables a different kind of seeing, because the eye is met by tableaus to roam and dive into. This piece is Metahaven’s first work for a planetarium, and marks a cycle continuing themes from their previous films “Information Skies” and “Hometown”. “Elektra” is a cinematic merger of animation and live action that reflects on childhood and the embodiment of the past in the present, a visual essay on nodes and nets. With specially composed music by Kara-Lis Coverdale.
