A philosophical conversation between a young man and a blind man.
Länge: 2 Minuten
Old Man is Manuel Tozzis 2nd animation video and was created during his studies at the Berliner Technische Kunsthochschule. Based on the track „Blind Man“ by British music producer Nomine, Tozzi created his visual interpretation of the voice recordings used in Nomine’s song. This recordings originally come from the television series „Kong Fu“ (1972) and are about a philosophical conversation between a young man and a blind man. In combination with the flickering and digital aesthetics of the video, which where made out of multiple techniques, such as 3D animation, custom software and hand-drawn frames, the men’s dialog emphasises the optically oriented environment modern, western society currently lives in.
