“Humankind cannot bear very much reality.” - T.S Elliot
For my piece, I want to do a an animation in which reality contrasts with normal human life. News broadcasts will be shown, with minimal music, and afterwards, a clip of happy, oblivious people will contrast the previous image to represent how society chooses regularly to avoid realty. Each clip will be from the same time period, in the 1940's, to exemplify how our obliviousness has occurred for longer than we think.
