Eye of Sound: Young Parisian filmmaker Johanna Vaude offers in Exploration a beautiful and colorful simulation of an interstellar journey. A pulsing non-beat, reminiscent of some post-Chain Reaction electronic music, propels the excursion sided by vaporous emissions os aural gas and smoke. Chromatic explosions are sometimes synched with the soundtrack, though much of the movement seems to drive forward mostly indifferent to the color nebulas and force fields crossed by this Exploration. The sometimes mesmerizing visual effects were created by distorting footage from scientific archives with hand-painted splashes and digital manipulation. If the universe does look like this, why are we wasting our time in this wrecked, gray planet of ours?
