A sort of spiritiual sequel to The String, which can be viewed here.

It's an allegory of sorts, but I've decided to leave it's interpretation more up to the viewers this time around instead of imposing my own explanation onto it. I hope you enjoy.

Feel free to check out my other art as well.

I Apologize

Im sorry to say that I couldn't really follow it so well it showed he was lonely but it looked like he had a family I think it would of been cool if his house was filled with like pictures of mannequins but Im sorry I couldn't really feel the emotion either

That's alright. What matters to me much more is that people are watching it. Even if there's a small portion of people that can get meaning from it, that's what's worth it to me.

sad

creating such lifeless objects

the saddest part is while the creator ages his creations will survive still lifeless

Really well done

I actually really love this flash. It was moody, thought provoking, sad, and a little eerie. Yes, the storyline and meaning is a little muddled, but I actually think that works here. I've always had a thing for open-ended stories, anyway. :)

You portrayed a very hollow man in his very hollow world really well. Nice job!

Great

Yea this was good, the way I see it its just a short clip to show the hard work of a man to create something that goes totally unnoticed by the population. Its the people who you don't see nor hear of but that actually contribute something to society. Or it could be how this guy gives away his whole life to create something which isn't even alive itself, therefore the name lifeless. This is nothing too fancy but I like it.

Expression of irony

I see the irony in this flash. The mannequins are just models (or dolls) and yet, they display such a wide array of art in the form of clothes. In that sense, they are full of life, due to the amount of culture and attention they attract. The worker however, is alive and has a beating heart and yet, has NO life. The mannequins are the ones with life, instead of the worker.

I thought that irony was well expressed.
