The fantastic geological formations that litter the surface of the desert planet Ouroboros are not its only natural wonder. Many diverse life forms dwell amongst the towering hoodoos, sweeping arches, and massive cliffs. Unbeknownst to each individual creature, his or her existence is only a small part of a perpetual and interconnected cycle. Geometric impossibilities and anomalous laws of physics present themselves at the most unexpected moments. Great multitudes wage brutal battles over frivolous differences. Motile beings transform into sessile plants, death gives way to life and the cycle begins again.

Sorry I haven't posted in so long. I started this in February but animated 80% of it over the past month. I hope you enjoy it and thanks for watching!


Edit: Thanks everyone for the daily feature and the great reviews!

A parasite that reproduces through tesselation...

The mix of real-life creature behavior (parasites that reproduce by getting eaten by their host) with abstract oddness is very unique. What do we call those things?

And Ouroboros... the snake that eats its own tail, a symbol of an endless life cycle. Suitable name!

Ouroboros... Isn't that a tentacle creature from Resident Evil 5 that you have to fight 3 times throughout the game? Anyway, great animation.
