Senseless by ZYCBrum
In Spring 2021, while lockdown measures were in place, the company met weekly online to develop a digital film project called Senseless.
The concept for Senseless came about through discussion of how the company felt about not being together physically in the same room, not being able to engage with the deep senses of a person and what it feels like to not be around someone in their physical form. It felt like we were in a ‘senseless’ season.
