    Koyaanisqatsi: Life Out of Balance is an American documentary film directed by Godfrey Reggio and music composed by Philip Glass. Composed of footages of natural landscapes and civilized cities, manipulated in slow motion, double exposure or time lapse, Koyaanisqatsi conveys a thoughtful reflection without judgement. In the Hopi language, the word Koyaanisqatsimeans "unbalanced life".
     
    This motion piece is a title sequence redesign project for Koyaanisqatsi. By playing with simple lines and different half of shapes, I illustrated visually this documentary's topic of balance. How to make a balance for our beloved planet is an series issue. I hope this motion work could be another way to inpired people think about this issue spontaneously.
