Video: The Circle (a visual poem)

From director Ezequiel Pini: “The circle evokes time, or more precisely, the fragments of time that pile up in a vast scenario of unique moments and memories. It is an introspective journey of wonder and imagination through these glimpses of time. This simple form has been a character present in my work for years, it represents care, calm, and attention to achieve its ultimate perfection. We are a circle, without boundaries, beginning or end. Infinity, Unity, connection, just a circle in expansion.”

This piece is part of Moco Museum collection. To be exhibited in Amsterdam and Barcelona.

Six N. Five founder Ezequiel Pini celebrates a new milestone with his latest piece, a short film dubbed ‘The Circle.’ Calming and introspective, the film exemplifies the artist and designer’s surreal, otherworldly style, this time taking the viewer along a journey of many quiet worlds. The protagonist of the story — the circle — is abstract and diverse. At times suggesting a luminous celestial orb, other moments appearing as a growing void, the circle is in a state of flux. 

The short film is the main piece of a larger collection of images which had recently been released as a series of NFTs (see here). Already, the short film has been sold to the Moco Museum which has locations in both Amsterdam and in the artist’s home city of Barcelona. The museum acquired the piece for $180,000 USD and will permanently exhibit it at its two galleries.

Produced by Six N. Five, a contemporary design studio specialising in still life visuals and videos with a clean and modern aesthetic; Apart from working on advertising, editorial and video commissions, they also find time to create experimental work which is legitimizing cgi as a new medium for creative self-expression. Their refined imagination, poetic compositions, edgy minds and sleek skills makes the studio a hit in the uniqueness and purity of its results.

Directed by Ezequiel Pini based in Barcelona
