Watery Rhymes

Agnieszka Polska
United Kingdom, Poland 2014 / 4’

Watery Rhymes is a short experimental film that uses computer-generated animation for a presentation that uses physics to discuss the rules for the functioning of language. The parts of speech, such as nouns and verbs, are described as if they were particles of matter that the principles of quantum mechanics can be applied to. In its easygoing form reminiscent of a music video (with music written especially for the film by American musician Sun Araw), the film discusses the limitations on our understanding of reality that are produced by language.
