Oblique Strategies

Short film (01:33)

OBLIQUE STRATEGIES is a typographic short film based on the set of cards created by Brian Eno and Eric Schmidt. Intended to suggest new ideas to artists and musicians, here each card acts as the starting point for evolving structures existing in a meditative space. The text itself moves in a way consistent with a loose association to the words - e.g. ‘Breathe More Deeply’ becomes a drawing in (inhalation) and rippling outward (exhalation), centred around a person. The film is intended to explore and stimulate the creative process, like the original cards.
