Æther 5 is a short visual journey of self-discovery featuring the snowboarding of Spencer O’Brien. Allowing her mind to tune into the pace of the world around her, she blurs the line between reality and the ethereal.
It is an exploration of the ancient concept of æther, the fifth element. The space between matter – a place where light stands still.
As a tribute to this theme, every frame on screen was captured directly in-camera, unaltered.
