Story Ambient by Mox

Mox is critical, sad and sometimes satirical. She has chosen to live with her friend, the forest, so in a mainstream social context she considers herself an outcast, but this is not a problem for her. The real problem is that Nature, her beloved friend, which is the home of all of us, is being destroyed bit by bit every day and everywhere.
Mox’s short films the edge (above) and cobweb (below) are a part of her Story Ambient, a spoken word video project. In the video the edge she gives us a glimpse of the introvert world of the narrator, who is a female artist living near the edge. cobweb, a short film with darkened video footage is about a man, who has mixed feelings about being in the net and telling his stories to the web.
Mox makes her short films available for the international community via the Internet. More videos of the Story Ambient series are available for online viewing at the Story Ambient site.
