The Screen Guide

LIVING ON THE COMET is an animated film that uses a recurring dream as a vehicle for examining and analysing the various ways in which we interpret and evaluate the patterns of our lives and the world. The four functions identified in this piece are ‘thinking’, ‘feeling’, ‘sensation’ and ‘intuition’. Each function allows us to experience a different reality and presents us with different interpretations of the same objects and events. This short animated film is based on the art of one of Australia’s leading new artists, Kathy Smith.
