Title: Vanitas
Synopsis:

Terra est vanitas, casts, cracks, vanities and voids/ Vanitas is a state of emptiness. Vanitas is a parallel between ceramics and graphic design through a triptych of contemporary vanities : body, knowledge, morality. A ceramic skull divided into 13 pictograms is the starting point of this thesis project.

A stop motion video with ceramics confront new technology and tradition. Each pictogram of the skull is "destroyed" in order to show time flying. Earth is memory, permanence, roots. Earth is matter, ephemera, transition. Earth is strength and fragility, belief and uncertainty. Earth is vanity.
