Above is an installation piece with secret silent film/animation hiding within.  Inside is a 3D animation on loop based on folktale about two women finding shelter under a whale skull amid the frozen landscape:

Animation below is based on folktale about the origins of snow. Ancient whale left the ocean to die on land.
Air and wind withered away his body until all left was a colossal heart. It wasn’t too long before it too gave away. When it burst open millions of white particles escaped and fell all over the ground.

What a beautiful story about the origins of snow!!

Stanislav Ginzburg is a Brooklyn based artist originally from Orenburg, Russia.  A lot of Stanislav’s artwork is inspired by folktales that deal with nature, strange species, microcosmic organisms, as well as animals which could have been living on earth or not.
