Absurdity in a Flower: a video art

Literary media artist: Jolanta Lapiak.
9.50 minute video.
Calgary, Canada, 2005.

The poetic, philosophical video art "Absurdity in a Flower" is a tale of existentialism, in which the anthropomorphic flower struggles for a sense of the meaning, existence and absurdity of life in her journey from naive youth to the struggles of love, solitude, existential angst, and creativity to the near discovery or understanding of the universe and nature. The video is a motion drawing in a poetic, narrative manner.

"A flower that blooms in adversity is the rarest and the most beautiful of all." -- unknown.
