Product Details


Hibernation is an audio-visual exploration of feelings of isolation and depression. The piece delves into the main character’s inner world, where she both longs and dreads to connect with other people, feeling scared of leaving her inner sanctuary.

Throughout the piece, we follow how she floats between her stagnant existence and vivid hyper-reality, where the dreamworld at times feels more real than her true mundane existence. The intent of Hibernation is not to give a traditional linear story or instructions of how to overcome loneliness or depression but, through music and video, to give form and expression to abstract and intangible emotions, which anyone who experiences isolation can connect to and feel less alone. Sebastian Hilli
