“Exquisite Vessel” is a transmedia narrative using different audiovisual media techniques such as fulldome cinema, surround audio and Virtual Reality (VR).
This audiovisual project deals with the topic of death and our perceptions of it. The project is connected to 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 Celso de la Molina stages 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.
Anu Raines accompanies Celso de la Molina in this very personal ritual with her acting and her talented music skills.
