Contagious is a short art video showing an artistic view on how a virus enters into a cell and the viral replication thereafter.
I rarely make an artwork related to big World events, and if I do, I usually wait until enough time has passed to view it from an emotional distance. Therefore, I surprised myself this time since I didn’t start out consciously with the idea in mind that I was going to make a video related to the Corona virus. But after playing around indoors with the camcorder for a few days, filming a glass filled with water and mingled with ink, I realized that I actually had filmed something that represented the process of a virus entering a cell, be it in an abstract, non-scientific way.
This version is created as a loop of 30 seconds. The original video is longer and can be viewed here: https://www.raboo.info/contagious/
