Residue is an expressionistic animation/video piece that glances into the confines of fractured identities. The pressure to be popular, the craving to be liked and approved of, and the fear of loneliness erodes the psyche leaving a residue of self doubts, self hatred and self bereavement - to finally realise that ultimately you are always alone. Is there comfort in that? Does anxiety and fear sit at the root of the human condition? Psychosomatically, how is fear rendered on the physical body ? The original sound explores a rich textural trance state suspended with digitally effected samples of voice and every day life.
