All That Space Between Us

Video installation, 5 minutes (infinite loop)
Sound by: Mari Kvien Brunvoll

A huge curtain is hanging in the ORO snoezel cinema at Het Rijtven in Deurne, the Netherlands. Slowly the curtain comes to life. The plants on the curtain fabric blossom, birds jump from branch to branch. The curtain opens slowly. There is a whole world behind it.

This is how the animated film All that space between us that the Dutch artist Simone Hooymans, who lives in Norway, started for the Snoezel cinema. Because the film is projected very large, you can always discover new details in the colorful world.

The music for the film was made by the Norwegian musician Mari Kvien Brunvoll. She plays porcelain. Her singing makes it even more fairy-tale-like.
