Land of the Blind

Dramatic structure with a plot a little comic and an reflexive issue about power.


In the land of the blind the one-eyed man is king

This phrase would make sense if the one-eyed man can see but in this case he is blind as well. so why would he be any different from the rest of the blind guys?

your flash lacks logic

The idiot below me has obviously never heard

The saying. In the land of the blind the one-eyed man is king.

I'm not sure about the king is yourself part but this looks like a cartoon of an old saying:

"In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king."

The quote is about mediocrity. for example, someone with a little talent is considered great by those with no talent.
all in all nice animation

The king is yourself?
Are you trying to say that blind people don't need to follow rules and authority because they can't see and therefore are exempt from reading laws?
Or does the crown help you to see?
Or does the drink help you to see?
Or does every blind person think that every person they meet is a king because they cannot see anyone, therefore you should pretend to be a king?
Or does being a king, meaning giving yourself self-esteem make you powerful?
Or does the one-eye represent a narrowed view of vision, or a perceptive view of vision?
Or does the crown just represent self confidence???
I've gone through so many possibilities to try and decipher your flash. I'm probably looking too much into it, but I can't grasp your concept by just watching the animation. Your comment doesn't make much sense either; literally and grammatically.
Nice use of the braille though, it was pretty cool.

peruketz responds:

It's not confused, just reflexive, like I said. And reflexion generates interpretations, and this you do very well. You think confused because not allowed yourself to interpret.

My english isn't so good, but, I hope you understand the point here.

It was alright,

Great animation, but the video was a bit confusing. I think I get the meaning though.
Also I read braille(for not real purpose) so it was cool being able to read the messages without needing the subtitles.
