Project Overview

In a carefully composed scene reminiscent of a sixteenth century Juan Sanchez Cotan still life, a pomegranate fruit stands out from a muted, theatrical backdrop. After a few moments, this symbolic fruit is exploded by a high-velocity bullet; seeds spilling from its disintegrating carcass in extreme slow-motion, and with an eerie and terrible beauty.
