Moirai, Thread of Life - Directed by Ina Conradi, Mark Joseph Chavez

Set in the distant future, a female astronaut in search of untouched lands finds herself gravitating toward a mysterious force in a strange cave. The viewer follows her through a journey of discovery and understanding as she gets pulled into another dimension, her ‘self’ entwined and connected with the larger fabric of the universe.

The Moirai were the white-robed incarnations of destiny who controlled the metaphorical thread of life of every mortal from birth to death. In this film we reinterpret this metaphor to describe quantum phenomena.

This film is the third in a series of films using intuitively derived design metaphors to explain quantum theories. Southeast Asian fabrics serve as the film’s primary inspiration.

The project is done with the support of the Ministry of Education Singapore, and it will serve as a resource and introduction to how science and quantum theories can inspire artists to create new art experiences Academic Research Fund (MOE AcRF Tier 1 Award RG43/20) ‘Quantum Logos: Developing Alternative Artistic Styles to Communicate Science’ 02/11/2020 - 01/11/2023
