Hand-drawn animation, color, sound, 3:56, 2019
This hand-drawn animation is a companion piece to the video portrait "Milton of Vivos." The film is comprised of background colors from my time spent with Milton Torres at the bunker complex VivosX in South Dakota and images of mining tools and technologies from the first major printed publication on mining techniques, De Re Metallica (On the Nature of Metals), written by Georgius Agricola (Georg Bauer) and published in 1556. This film is part of the Long Sleepers series of films.
Music: Moriz Rosenthal performing Franz Liszt, Liebestraum no. 3, 1929/30
