All the following stop-motion animations are hand drawn frame by frame by the artist. The soundtrack is made from scratch by the artist.

Median life and / or death

2019 © Petteri Cederberg

A study of lives of individuals which are at the same time upmost meaningful and utterly meaningless. Every humans life is both indispensable and indifferent. From the perspective of humankind individuals life and death is meaningless, but at the same time mankind would not exist without individuals. Everybody and no-one matters.

With colour with sound 

2016 © Petteri Cederberg

A personal attempt to portray infinity “with colour – with sound”. The concept of infinity is both fascinating and frustrating. How can something be infinite? Is there something beyond infinite? Infinity can be approached with imagination or mathematics – yet it can never be attained. Each frame of the animation is a painting or a drawing. The soundtrack is composed of manipulated recordings.

Truth

What is truth? Is there such thing as the truth? One doesn’t see things as they are; one sees them as one is. The animation is Cederberg’s abstract, and inescapably doomed, attempt to visualize the absolute truth. 

Knowing

Animation is a hunt for knowledge using series of images. There is no final answer just endless amount of questions – and images.

Sequence

After having made paintings and drawings for many years Cederberg started to get interested in the processes of making an image. ”Overdoing” his paintings and drawings was happening occasionally. This animation brings visible the processes of drawing and painting.
