Vimeo Staff Pick: Body of Songs: The Nose Images: Seán Vicary Music: ‘nose song’ by Sam Lee & Llywelyn ap Myrddin The Body of Songs project brings together major musicians and scientists to create a songs inspired by the body’s organs. A select number of artist-animators have also been invited to collaborate with the musicians and scientists, undertaking their own journey of discovery. When I first heard a rough mix of Sam Lee & Llywelyn ap Myrddin’s nose song I was transported. It was literally a sonic version of that all-consuming experience of smelling; of surrendering to a moment…and then, the intensity impossible to hold or maintain, it slips away and fades. In this animation I have aimed for the visual equivalent: exploring the poetic landscape evoked by the physiological process of olfaction, fusing the scientific and the lyrical whilst also suggesting a fictive/autobiographical subtext drawn from my personal experience of coping with my Mum’s dementia. While researching the work I visited genetics and smell expert Dr Darren Logan at the Wellcome Trust Sanger institute and was impressed with his step-by-step description how we smell. I expanded upon this as the structure for an impressionistic journey through a composite dreamscape of smell and memory. When we smell ‘something’ the volatile molecules travel up the nose, triggering olfactory receptor neurons which send signals on a long journey into the brain’s olfactory bulb and out into the olfactory cortex, which passes information to other parts of the brain, such as the hippocampus where olfaction-memory processes occur. I was visually inspired by striking electron microscopy of various parts of the olfactory system which possessed a fabulous abstract quality, reminding me of other natural forms; corals, roots, trees, hills etc. I used these as a guide to construct animated visual metaphors for different parts of the process, collaging natural found objects (rocks, flowers, shells etc.) together to create an internal dreamscape through which my stop-motion animated ‘molecules’ could travel. The olfactory sensor neurons are the only part of the brain that touches the outside world, and smell is the only sense that bypasses the logical mind, avoiding the cortex (where we make decisions) and feeding straight into the sub-cortical regions where we experience emotions. This is how molecules of smell can act as a key that momentarily unlocks the door to deeply experienced forgotten memories. The past few years I have watched the slow decline of my Mother into dementia: She had once been a passionate gardener constantly filling the house with the scent of flowers from her garden, and now as I sat with her in the care home, among the thick odors of disinfectant and urine, I thought about the transportive quality of smell. My cousin recently gave me a large bag of decaying 8mm films containing footage of my Mum’s childhood in India, all shot by my Grandfather from 1935 -1944. These flickering little snippets of Himalayan picnics provided the inspiration and source material for my animated olfactory signals, triggered on their journey through a half-remembered landscape by molecules of Balsam and Jasmine. /// Disclaimer: The Official Vimeo Team Staff Pick can not reflect our personal selection or interest at the moment

Vimeo Staff Pick: A woman under sedation for a lung operation sinks inside her own unconscious. Made for Body Of Songs and Andreya Triana’s Branches Of Life. http://ift.tt/1WAyepz You can go to Directors Notes for a detailed account of the process and inspiration behind the work: http://ift.tt/25aiijI Body of Songs brings together major musicians and clinicians to create a remarkable collection of songs, inspired by the body’s organs. Andrea Triana chose the Lungs and was inspired by observing a patient undergoing a bronchoscopy, hoping to breathe in a wide open space again following her impending operation. Once we started collaborating, I observed a lung operation which took my breath away; I was profoundly moved and fascinated by the team of doctors, anaesthetists and nurses in the process of saving that patient’s life. Inspired by this, and listening closely to Andreya’s lyrics and notes, I decided to turn the patient into a deep-sea diver, sinking in her own body and swimming through the lungs. The hospital comes to life and we discover the Branches of Life, the bronchi. I used CGI to create the world of the film, aiming to journey through the clinical and the bodily, floating between life and death. The starting point is at that dreamy beginning of anaesthesia, where the mind drifts helplessly into the darkness and hopes to see the light once again.
