‘Samsara’ (the mind turned outwardly, lost in its projections) is a charcoal drawn, stop-motion animation, discussing the cyclical nature of life, death and rebirth. The story is played out in a dream-like world, full of symbolism and surreal imagery, laced with metaphor and mythology. Life is discussed as a series of actions and consequences in a never-ending loop. Images of things appear then disappear, grow then die, questioning the ideas of predestination and the illusion of free will. Each person is the centre of their own story, each creating their own reality by way of their choices
