When death is prevented, it becomes cruel in persistence.

*EDIT: Thank you all for the feature!**

Created and Animated by me.
Inspired by Tool.

I am aware that there are a number of problems with this animation. Careless mistakes that I didn't see until now. I hope they don't bother any of you too much.

Its Dark and Nice

Completely nice! ;-;

this is just sad.

This animation is touching in a melancholy tone. Not only is it moving from an emotional standpoint, but, also on a mental one as well. In all honesty, this animation represents a deep level of depression. The woman is an amputee, dirty, and (assumingly) starving.

First off, the "Mr. Sickness" can be open to interpretation as to who or what it is. I, personally, interpret it as Death. The woman was alone and helpless, no one around to help her. In the fact that it fed her, bathed her, spent time with her...etc. To those whom are suffering from a deep depression, the thought of Death can be comforting.

Secondly, the third part (When It is outside in the rain and her sleeping on the bed) is a representation of the process of death. When the time comes when they decide when they die, it can be so sudden and on a whim.

I'm not saying this animation is a symbol for depression, but this animation is definitely far reaching. That is my theory.
