New Voices of Ireland Series 8 Against the Odds - 2021
This work titled “Tree of Life” is inspired by Iordanis piano piece titled “As the Leaves Fall”. This song is very meaningful, deeply emotional, and uses nature as a metaphor.
When I first listened to ‘As the leaves fall’ I was deeply moved. My first instinct was to illustrate the falling leaves as I felt it reflected the poignancy of the music. I continued to allow the music to direct my imagination which later would lead to this short animation. My intention was to create feelings of hope and happiness.
Iodanis composed a brand new piece of music based on one of Nasrin´s paintings called Shahmaran which is the name of an ancient Persian Goddess.
