WITHOUT A DOUBT - UK PREMIÈRE

(US)
6 mins
Director: Gerald Guthrie

'Without a Doubt' is a digital animation that illustrates one variation of the 17th century philosopher Rene Descartes' view of the world. This time-based visual metaphor draws together Descartes' understanding of geometry, expressly the invention of the Cartesian co-ordinates (X,Y,Z), and his most famous statement, 'I think, therefore I am,' to create an introspective dimension within our own understanding.
