On The Cusp, Longlist - Personal

Still Life

Serafima Serafimova


The last few months have been tough. Like so many of my friends and colleagues I was put on the government's furlough scheme which meant that I suddenly had a lot of time on my hands and not a lot to do with it. So I decided to create an animation which focused on what I missed the most - the freedom to move, and be close to the people I love. Still Life is a celebration of the beauty of movement and human closeness at a time when the world stood still and we were forced to stay apart.
