Decay Acceleration

a Blender short film imagining what it would be like to have the superpower to accelerate decay of things.




April 2022


This project began with a curiosity about the experience of possessing a decay-inducing superpower and observing the world at an atomic scale. The superpower accelerates decay based on proximity.

In this project, I explored the concept of "end of life" for objects, questioning the traditional life cycle assessments that define disposal or recycling as the final stage. I focused on the atomic level, where objects never truly disappear but simply reconfigure. This ability to perceive atoms will alter our understanding and relationship with objects and materials, treating them not just as objects but as clusters of a more micro component.
