SURFACE is an experimental film, exploring the emotional journey from an underground urban perspective.
This 'urban symphony' transforms human actions and street objects into beats that harmoniously compose a grand audio and visual composition. The film emphasizes the ideas of ‘point of contact’, ‘human identity’ and notion of ‘live footprints’.
SURFACE is a part of UND-VIS, a thesis project for MFA Design and Technology, Parsons The New School for Design.

UND-VIS : Underground Vision Experiments.
“What would the world be like from an underground perspective?”
UND-VIS is an exploratory process of understanding the unique vision from underground. The primary premise is not focusing on representing the reality or documenting life from underneath, instead attempt to illustrate the concept of shifting in perspective through various methods of simulations and prototyping.
UND-VIS : Key Visual.
New York's Fifth Ave. Apple Store 'translucent walkway' defused the image of the visitor with the milky visual effect.
It becomes the key visual for UND-VIS project.
