the sign

a film by Rosie Pedlow

animate! synopsis

Diagrams of chemistry apparatus and educational film footage react and combine in this quirky interpretation of the poem Modes of Representation by Nobel Laureate chemist Roald Hoffmann.

The film illustrates how technology changes the way we represent the world, with results that prove ironic and inconclusive.
