    Interesting Animation

    I am not sure if this has been posted on here before, but I recently stumbled upon this interesting (and a tad strange) 3D animated clip which is full of symbolism that I still do not fully understand. There are many references to recent political events it seems, but done so in a more artsy way.

    Embedded Video


    Warning: there are breasts in the clip at one point.

    Perhaps some of you can offer your interpretation of the video and the symbols employed.

    Edit: This is also probably best viewed full screen.

    This link gives one persons explanation.
    Science - Here are the facts, now what conclusions can we draw from them?
    Religion - Here are the conclusions, now what facts can we find to support them?
    Politics - We don't need no facts, just opinions and those are our conclusions

    As someone who has worked in 3D graphics before, i have to say that this video is amazingly skillful done.

    As someone who looks at this video for its (symbolic) meaning, i find this all a bit...pretentious to be honest. Sure, some symbolism here might really be on to something, but presenting it in this artsy way, it gives me the willies a bit

    I already see the over-analyzers coming, with insane theories about this and that, ahh, annoying!

    .

    Just because the film appears to be full of symbolism doesn't necessarily mean it contains any profundity or even that the "symbolism" symbolises much of anything at all.

    The only messages I got from this were that George Bush is a dunce, Osama bin Laden is a villain (I'm left scratching my head to figure out what Jesus has to do with either of them). So all in all, not exactly enlightening information, nor am I left any the wiser as to what the overall moral is that I am supposed to take from it.
    Close observation may result in feelings of horror, wonder and awe at world you find yourself inhabiting.

    I think the message was that we should awake from our uniforming modern life slumber governed by some hidden or hypocritical forces by taking a more spiritual and free way of life.

    The problem (or purpose) with this kind of symbolic story is that everyone will interpret it according to his own knowledge and feelings. Some will see nothing more than mere drawings describing strange facts whereas other will give over-interpretations in highly spiritual way.

    PS: Nice animation btw

    Also, note the CIA badge on Osama. He, along with Bush and Obama, is portrayed as a puppet.

    Yeah I didn't really get it.

    But I didn't get these either...




    Then again, I don't do drugs ...

    I agree with Sybren, I find it pretentious. Like the 'art' I showed above, there is this strange elitist tone in that, you feel you are being denigrated for not 'getting' it (usually you are by these 'art' aficionados) . Really, there isn't much to get. Let's face it, not everyone can write a Hotel California.
