animation: We drift

Thursday, November 27th, 2008

We drift towards what we cannot have

Metaphors used in this animation are an eye, a fish, a mouth, a pair of feet and a spiral.

The feet suggest a human walking naked in Antarctica. Stripped bare of all pretensions, he could be seen from the point of view of the ice sheet (looking up).

Coiling and uncoiling from a fish’s mouth, a spiral extends, suggesting something is being explored, and possibly consumed.

An eye opening and closing in rhythm with a fish’s motionĀ  suggests humans and fish are connected.

Snow circling and spiraling all around evokes the force of Antarctic wind.

A human mouth is speaking but we cannot hear a word. This suggests there is no word to describe Antarctica.
