Tamás Waliczky :: The Garden (21st Century Amateur Film) [1992]

In 1991 Waliczky wrote the script for »The Garden,« an animation based on an idea, which came from an old piece of Super-8 film, made over ten years before, showing a little girl playing in a country garden. The artist's aim was to portray the alertness and curiosity of a small child investigating its surroundings, and to evoke the particular sense of affection that children often inspire in us. To illustrate these lines of force, Waliczky devised a new type of perspective: The "waterdrop-perspective" structures every object from the vantage point of the child within the space of the image: the objects grow or shrink as the child approaches them or moves away. Thus everything in the space becomes visually distorted; the world is seen as a sphere and the child as its centre.
