My favourite things is concerned with the fundamentals of art – perception and interpretation – and how the misinterpretation of art can produce skewed analysis. To illustrate this phenomenon, Polska skillfully manipulates the documentary form to produce playful, unique animations. A subject floating in slow motion is a common visual element present in the work of the artist. In this film, the artist’s favourite things are presented as a collection of props. Interpretation, even that which is “flawed”, provides a chance to propagate analysis. The artist contends that different, often contrary analysis, pushes art forward.
