Digital animation “Lost in the woods low res” consists of animated collages as representations of landscapes. It is a voyage through the constructed landscapes with kitschy elements of fairytales, consumerism and social networks and deals with the topic of escapism and the relationship between real and constructed world. The animation is bright colored and finds inspiration in computer influenced and advertising aesthetics and merges in to psychadelic imagery. In today’s society one cannot avoid being part of consumerist culture and internet influence. With their omnipresence one can easily get lost in this world or “wood” of artificial, digital and pop elements.
