Zufit Simon and Fredrik Olofsson decided to produce a short film instead of the Munich-Premiere cancelled in January this year. Just have a look: film link

This project posits FOAM as a metaphor for the nature of modern societies. With the “unstable stability” that characterises foam, it serves as an image of today’s living human reality, which one could also call spaces multiplicity. The individual cell is a bubble, isolated and fragile; only in a multitude does it become foam – in that way it enables examination of the tension between the individual and the masses. Foam can also be defined as “air in an unexpected place”, something that, although it takes form, is nevertheless very transient. The emerging images conceive of the body in its fragility as an unstable fluid. It’s worth taking a closer look at this apparently so familiar, everyday phenomenon...
