THE SIRENS OF TITAN from Dani Wolf on Vimeo.

Title sequence for a film based on the Kurt Vonnegut novel. Made with Tal Moskovich.

Our goal was to create a visual interpretation of a phenomenon in space known as chrono-synclastic infundibulum, which is defined by Vonnegut as "those places … where all the different kinds of
truth fit together."
