whatsherface #9: Marta Di Francesco - THE WAVES

May 5, 2017



THE WAVES is an experimental short film inspired by the 1931 Virginia Woolf novel.


The waves incessantly and repeatedly dip and crest, crashing, forming and breaking again.


The waves weave into a constantly morphing flow, where different identities knit and merge into each other, losing themselves in pulsing lines and knots. With their hypnotically continuous cycle, the waves question our identity, in permanent state of flux.


Marta Di Francesco (*1978) is a London based visual artist, exploring new aesthetics, merging poetics with code.

She's interested in the implication of the digital process on identity and its fragmentation, exploring and questioning it through digital bleed, time displacement, and through the sculptural quality of time in 3D aesthetics. For over a decade, she has been writing and creating radical visual pieces which inhabit and cross over the world of film, dance, fashion, and code, working through multidisciplinary collaborations to explore new expressions and conversations.
