"The Boundaries which divide life from death are at best shadowy and vague. Who shall say where the one ends, and where the other begins?" - Edgar Allan Poe
The shortfilm, based on Edgar Allan Poes quotation, is the result of my work in the 5th semester at the Anhalt University of Applied Science. It was a solo project and the conceptional work, the creation and the implementation of the animation took about three months.
Der Kurzfilm, welcher auf Grundlage von Edgar Allan Poes Zitat entstand, ist das Ergebnis einer Semesterarbeit aus dem fünften Semester an der Hochschule Anhalt im Fachbereich Design. Er entstand als Ein-Mann-Projekt und Konzeption, Bau der einzelnen Elemente sowie Animation dauerten etwa drei Monate.
So we have this process, called life, it's aware of itself, it's aware of itself through you, you are an instrument through which the Universe looks at itself.
The Universe is looking at itself through you, and because of this there is always an aspect of itself that it can't see.
Like a snake pursuing his own tale.
That's what we find as we investigate the Universe:
Make the microscope bigger and bigger, and we will find ever more minute things;
Make the telescope bigger and bigger, and the Universe expands, because it's running away from itself;
It won't do that if you don't chase it!
You cannot take the whole of it, but you can get rid of it!
People around you will do the utmost to persuade you that you are missing something, because they are missing something and they think they are getting it, through a certain way; and therefore, to assure theirselves, they like you to do it too!
