“4 States of Matter” is an abstract animation film whose main theme is “matter”. It is developed in four different acts/movements, each one with a distinct graphic and sound universe, globally constituting a journey through the four major states of matter: solid, liquid, gas and plasma. In each of these parts three conceptual dimensions coexist, corresponding to three different areas of human knowledge: science, art and religion. These three sub-themes are the sources of inspiration for abstract shapes and sounds as well as movements and rhythms that form the animated sequences of the film.
