The Orrery, Paul Tarragó

Completed in 2021, The Variations is a suite of 4 standalone films, reconfiguring home life as a combination newsletter, ad campaign, personal cinema, and experimental workbook.

Taking a playfully structuralist approach (think: Hollis Frampton at his most benign), each video reworks recurrent motifs, imagery, and narrative tropes, parlaying them into an extended, ever-evolving open ended cine-anagram.

They incorporate stop-motion, time lapse, live action, mixed media animation, analogue and digital media, and filmmaking glee.
