The animation „Evangelia“ by Walter Padao shows a sequence of a slowly moving dancer composed of individual drawings / still images. These images are drawn from changing perspectives and give the impression that the viewer is walking around the dancer. Returning to the starting point, the whole thing repeats – a recurring sequence, a loop. Similar to „Bullet Time,“ a film effect familiar from „The Matrix,“ the viewer’s position changes, but the dancer does not „stand“ perfectly still – she is not frozen – but moves herself as if in slow motion. Padao’s works reflect aspects of temporality. In „Evangelia,“ he subtly experiments with shifting the relationships of body, space, and time, creating a special moment of meditative stillness. And the music by Julia Kent magically supports this atmosphere.
