Exploring Life Through the Depths of the Subconscious Mind
The animation short I have produced is very personal on the subconscious level. There is no single theme; the narrator is the viewer. It is a dream sequence aiming to achieve Kafkaesque quality. About four minutes long, combined with dynamic music this piece of work is my reaction to society, to my life, ever changing surroundings, my traveling, childhood memories, and man-woman relationships, education, feelings, everyday worries, and everything else that I at the moment of producing felt like adding. It is suppose to be a portrait of me inside. I tried to recreate the everyday chaos of thoughts, emotions, and actions. I went after flashes of nightmarish images, short actions, every image being different. Although I know plenty of useful software and technological tricks, I want to go beyond the technique. I do not want to choose only one style and be forced to stay with it, as I work. Psychologically, it let me discover who I am. It served my development as an artist. The chaotic mirage I created, should force the viewer to make up their own interpretations, and thus feed their creative and analytical mind, and search for their own ego as well. By being as creative, loose, and constantly in touch with my subconscious sphere I opened new doors to new paths, in hope to help people understand each other better.
