There have been extremely few — really if any — experimental short films that attempt to replicate the painterly technique of Cubism. While that may not have been the goal quite set out by Christina McPhee, she perfectly captures all elements of the ocean in a sort-of Cubist montage in her short film Carbon Surf Drawing. In this film, she explores the power, beauty and science of the water in an exciting rushing torrent of images.
