Never Been To Athens

Here, our animated space traveler rides through the stars in a vegetable, lands on shifting desert planets, and drifts past televisions embedded in asteroids. Its suffused with a sense of sadness and dreams unrealized: the astronaut has touched the sky, but his sad eyes reveal that hes missing something hell likely never find. Most of the video is constructed from sliding two-dimensional solids and cut-outs, which gives this expansive universe a curious feeling of flatness and disorientation. Its a fascinating ride, and one that ends in disappointment for the poor main character, but in revelation for the viewer.
