Gravity is a series of short animations made for Luftburen, a performance on the theme of weightlessness. The animations were made in collaboration with artist Anna Liljedal and address the concept of gravity. The series presents a chronological summary of what people have considered as reasons for the very mundane experience of stuff falling to the ground, in four animations. An exploration is made from the main theory in ancient Greece to quantum mechanics. We wanted to emphasize how fundamental and closely linked these theories are to our experience of the universe, Whilst also reflecting on the absurdity of each theory.
