Made in homage to Stan Brakhage, an influential American experimental filmmaker who died on the cusp of the digital age. Brakhage made "The Wold Shadow", a visionary visual approach, which inspires "Mystic Child". His work was also about art history: realism, figuration, expressionism, abstraction, surrealism and concept. The artist describes the storyline as follow: "this video is structural visual poetic work with sequential transformations, using datamoshing, of a forest and a little girl. Girl and forest become one. It's also about a father and his daughter. This video may also be best understood as an exercise in color, light, abstraction, accompanied by tentative and glancing views of a child's eyes in the expectation of pain. Is it possible that the camera is the cruellest instrument ?"
