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.

*edit*
I didn't even realize this made the front page. I was wondering why this was getting so much attention all of the sudden. Thanks a lot guys.

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.

Eventually I won't even bother

Why are there so many convoluted animations on NG? I seriously can't find more than a handful of animations that actually have a sensible story.

I'm sorry, it's meant to be more open ended so that you can make your own interpretation so that's part of it.

Nice animation...

Good job on the Animation, the music went kinda repetitive, but it was ok, fitting... BUT... Whut? O.o I didn't get it.

You are a great animator!

I also love your illustration style. If you make more videos like this I would be so happy and rate them all 5/5 and 10/10, like I did on this one. Keep up the good work!
