More Info Works / The Jump


Clutched in the grasp of mechanization, a little man incessantly performs monotonous series of movements. The world is a void of humanity and warmth. While examining his felt boots his subconscious begins to revolt and a visual world opens up. The inner relations of the visions cannot be defined exactly: it is either an escape from the mechanization of life or permanent scars in the conscience of humanity.
