Recurring Dream



Three short stories depict almost the same scenario with different plots, each one has an opening scene, a climax and an aftermath. The first scene shows a rotating, slightly decorated white cone that eventually¬† starts to crumble. The second scene starts with three trees in an empty space that changes into three eroded scaffolds of scarecrows, while a metal ball is rotating. The last scene is a 2D clip, about the giving birth of a bead; suddenly there are two elephants’ carcasses that have just appeared out of the blue.
