MOJO DA FLOODS



Mojo: Da Floods is an animated short film that introduces a world in which the rituals of Black culture shape geological phenomena. The film is a portal into a speculative ecology where vast machines operated by music producers hover over a floodplain landscape, using bass notes from amplified music to vibrate bodies of water. These vibrations form cymatic patterns in the water used to visually mix and master sound.  Spillage from the process irrigates surrounding soil and flora distributed by seed-dropping drones. Through the production of music, the ecological system is sustained and the landscape is transformed. The film is one of a series of animated vignettes that depict a world where ecosystems and landscapes are birthed by the movement of black bodies in space.
