“Exquisite Vessel” is a transmedia narrative using different audiovisual media techniques such as fulldome cinema and surround audio.
This audiovisual project deals with the topic of death and our perceptions of it. The project started with Lucio Celomundo’s master thesis at Aalto University’s Media Lab, Helsinki.
The 1st episode of Exquisite Vessel is called ‘Epitaph I, Celso de la Molina’. It consists on an immersive 6-7 minutes short-film.
In this 1st episode short-film actor and artist Celso de la Molina reflects on his life experiences while staging the way he would like to die and recites a very intimate poem that he wrote reflecting on his life and his vision on death.
