Descrizione Opera / Biografia

Fibonacci Bread
animation movie by Danijel Zezelj.
Animation is created by painting a series of large-scale paintings (acrylic on wood), photographing the painting process in short intervals (following metamorphosis of images from abstract towards figurative) and editing those images into narrative sequences.
The paintings are made on 2x1 meter wooden boards using traditional handcraft methods: acrylic paint is applied with rollers and wide brushes creating layers of texture where every new image is carved out of a previous one. This process is photographed in short intervals capturing every phase of the painting’s transformation.
All photographs are processed (Photoshop), turned into image sequences (Quicktime) and edited with soundtrack (Final Cut).
All stages of the process, manual and digital, are correlated. Constant corrections and adjustments between painting and editing allow a gradual construction of the storyline, from the ground up, towards the final form.
Fibonacci Bread is set in the heart of an urban metropolis, in the sliver of time between yesterday and tomorrow. Our main character, a bread maker, spends nights baking spiral-shaped pastries. In the pre-dawn hours he rides his bicycle, distributing them to local homeless people. A topography of his own dreams and memories becomes a map for morning travels through the labyrinth of the city. His journey will eventually lead to an encounter with the city’s secret visitor - a metaphor as large and universal as hunger and bread.
