the entropy of forgiveness
A Film By Merissa Victor
The Entropy of Forgiveness was selected as a winner for the Inspire Mental Wellness (#KindArt) design challenge issued by Lady Gaga's Born This Way Foundation in conjunction with Adobe's Project 1324.
Issued in honour of Mental Health Awareness Month, the challenged called for pieces of visual art that inspires and highlights the care of mental health. Click the logos above to learn more.
The Entropy of Forgiveness is a collaborative spoken word film which explores the concept of embracing grief and guilt into life and having it hold less heaviness. This piece was originally created for and submitted to the Inspire Mental Wellness design challenge in May 2018.
In creating this piece, I worked closely with spoken word artist, Angelica Poversky, to craft a visual aesthetic that would resonate with the powerful message of her words. Through my contributions in visual direction, cinematography and editing I hoped to foster empathy and inspire kindness at moments which need it the most.
