A millennial is relying on her magic 8-ball to make sense of a chaotic life. Her non stopping questions cause her to fall through the sofa into her unconsciousness. When realising her 8-ball disappeared, she sets out on a journey to find it, encountering different aspects of herself. A satire about a never ending quest towards self realisation, self improvement, and life’s answers.
Zohar Dvir is an award-winning multidisciplinary artist creating animated and interactive work inspired by some of the bigger questions of philosophy and psychology.
Dvir originally studied Visual Communication in Jerusalem, where she developed a name for herself in the VJ world, designing moving image projections for clubs and musicians. After moving to London to study a masters at the Royal College of Art, Dvir fell in love with filmmaking and immersive storytelling. Her distinctive animation style is self-taught, and blends two and three-dimensional elements as well as a healthy dose of surrealism.
A fascination with philosophy and psychoanalysis fuels Dvir, prompting her to explore the deeper questions around what makes us human, and what that means for the stories we tell. It’s mixed together with a sense of off-kilter humour, which adds a unique kind of playfulness to her work.
Dvir’s work spans music videos, games, interactive installations and animated short films – including the tragi-comic Mercury’s Retrograde, which Dvir describes as “an inner dialogue about seeking answers”.
