      Ammodo Tiger Short Award - IFF Rotterdam

    Taking on a decidedly sombre tone, Thai artist Korakrit Arunanondchai tackles the difficult subject of death in this latest iteration of his multifarious series. As drones take on the role of spirits, animism and reincarnation establish a universe in which spirits and living species share the same stream of existence. A human-sized rat journeys through the rubble of global capitalism and asks himself: “Will you find beauty in this sea of data?”
