Hand camera: Sandro Decleva
Music composed by Stephen Ferguson
The garden is made up of sculptures: The film takes the viewer on a walk through an exhibition, where he is surprised by three-dimensional animated objects. At the same time it is a journey through the nature cycle of a year. For Iby-Jolande Varga the Little Sculpture Garden is an allegory for the artistic and creative work.*
The film is animated with replacement technique: The 10 sculptures, are built of about 300 three-dimensional jigsaw parts and were animated with over 1200 additional parts which were put together over 10,000 times in different combinations.
Stephen Ferguson made Iby-Jolande Varga’s sound world his raw material for his composition: nature sounds that she collected, sounds at work, like woodwork and camera sounds, interviews with her, her singing, whispering, whistling, clapping and her piano playing.
Produced with a film scholarship by the Austrian Ministry for the Arts.
