"I wanted to start in a very simple way, and then to turn the bathroom into a very surrealistic and artistic visual background. Especially the contrast with the red and the blue, I think is something powerful and are colors I use often in my work are as well. And the end of the film... I really wanted to depict it like still life paintings, where the decay of animal or food was “frozen” by the artist in a sad poetry out of time. That was my reference for the end, also for the unnatural green color of the death skin."
