Hey! To start this decade right, we believe Newgrounds should be ad-free for EVERYONE. For this to work, we need people who have the means to become paying supporters. For just $3 per month or $25 for the year, you can help this happen and get some nice perks!

For the month of February we have disabled ads on all E-M content. We need 226 people to reach our goal of 3,100 active supporters. If we hit that, we'll continue with a new goal in March!

Please check out our Supporter Upgrade and consider coming aboard!

The birth of an Object

Visualisation of the concept of appearence of an Object by Jacques Lacan. That's rather complex psycho analysis concept, so be attentive.

Напомнило ролики из серии TED-Ed и клип Дельфина "Без нас". Только этот мульт темнее, абстрактнее, более подходит нашему постсоветскому восприятию вещей. Просто прекрасно. Пять звезд.

An analogy of the relation ship between the offspring and its mother, as it is born and separated from her womb, just so it can be reunited with her in the outside world, when it will enjoy from her breast its first taste of pleasure, food, nourishment that now again connects it with its mom, and thus an object is born, and since it is born this thing is alive.

Interesting view, however Harry Harlow would disagree, as his experiments demonstrated the link between mother and offspring was beyond nourishment and attachment was related more to physical contact http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harry_Harlow#Partial_and_total_isolation_of_infant_monkeys

Definitely an intriguing perspective on life and appearance, albeit at a frantic pace hehe.
The message has dark undertones, and that's not a bad thing, it's actually refreshingly welcome.
The visuals are fairly abstract and I think they are a perfect accompaniment to the monologue.
In fact, I think I'll go check out some of your other stuff.
Keep up the good work!

It wasn't only complex, but so fast-paced that following the arguments was a real challenge, maybe even more so with subtitles... though I'm glad of course there are subs. :D The imagery was fluid and adaptive, and the concept something unique and objective. Nice work!


This was interesting, decent video overall.
