We R the World/Mold

Dawn George
Canada, 2016, 6 min.

In English.

Up close, mold is an intricate mass of branching filaments and delicate fruiting bodies creating a colourful connected web. When viewed from a distance, mold loses its complexities and a more destructive nature is realized - much like the world we live in.

Director's Statement

The 'spore' of this idea originated from discovering a beautiful decaying apple in my compost, combined with my recent fascination with time-lapse photography and a comedy special from Joe Rogan. I used CGI techniques, time-lapse filming and animation to explore the phenomena of growth as something delicate, magnificent and even necessary against its powerful and destructive nature; challenging the way we comprehend our existence as individuals and as a collective organism.
