Animated short film

Matthias LERCH[Germany]


An experimental animation work that poetically depicts the surreal way in which a machine uses plants and animals to construct a living doll. Based on the myth of Pandora, who is said to have been created from mud by Hephaistos, the god of smiths, the process of developing consciousness is expressed using various mechanical parts and elements such as light bulbs, gears, and wires.
