Out of emotional impulse, love and flame blast in a flash
When there is not enough light, the colour drains from our vision; without the fire, a relationship becomes cold and dark.
Put out the Flame is a dive into the emotional distance inside a couple’s life, how physical proximity can sometimes reveal the inability to connect. We observe the continuous routine of two people living in the same space, which is steeped in melancholic nostalgia of what once was warm and colourful. How easy is it to fall into living half a life?
