Nasty Sugar Said Fly, As We Danced On Top Of Mars (2020)
An animated film exploring the relationship between the digital and the physical worlds and how they interact with one another. Through 3D scanning software, sculpture and photogrammetry, Ellie has created a series of whimsical, animated entities that exist together, flying and dancing in a utopian state. The manipulation of the tactile, physical sculptures to glitchy, digital objects offers an insight into the future possibilities of touch and technology.
The digitised human experiences the allure from the simulated world and encounters the cyber born character ‘Nasty Sugar’ and decides to remain in the idyllic space. Nasty Sugar Said Fly, As We Danced On Top Of Mars explores the hedonist view that pleasure is the solution to happiness.
