First video release for my 2016 video a week project. Each video is a kind on tone poem inspired by the early universe, particle physics, and life on earth. OBT refers to 'On Being There', which is a tip of the hat to both mindfulness and to the discoveries in science that allow us to contemplate and appreciate such incredible moments as the big bang, or the initiation of self replication, or the form of the eukaryote cell, or chemical bonds, or the nature of particle interactions, or photosynthesis.... My approach is abstract in nature so please do not assume exact depictions of these topics. I take a very organic approach to animation, sound design and editing that is about conceptual exploration, rather than explanation. This means that where the video can end up is very far from the actual science.
