Entropia is a container of three parallel universes where three girls are living in different circumstances. One of them represents the animalistic side of human nature, one of them is a consumer fulfilled with her own frustrations, and the third one is living in a futuristic room where she has to run to keep the system work. Suddenly a fly flews over the three universes and make a bug in the system. Because of that bug the three universes start collapsing and the girls are able to move towards each other.
When I wrote Entropia I wanted to tell an honest story about a young woman entering adulthood. I went to the cinema to watch ‘Is the Man Who is Tall Happy ’ by Michel Gondry and I got hooked on one sentence of the film. It sounded something like this: What will you do if a time machine goes wrong and you accidentally meet yourself? I felt terribly lost that time so I started digging into the topic of self acceptance and personalities. I was observing myself, my dreams and desires and I found three aspects I wanted to show. I found it important to talk about the animalistic side of human nature since it is still part of our everyday life and I think it is something we should respect and learn about. The other aspect was a meta level how I felt at the moment inside my head. So I created a room with a character who has no life, just the everyday routine to make the system work until she burns out. And the third aspect was how I felt as a young woman in the society being judged by appearance. One day I had a dream in a supermarket where I was searching for something and an old snake-looking lady came towards me and warned me to be aware, because every living creature just want to fuck. This gave me the idea to show society in a supermarket where you can consume and being consumed by others.
