Bog Body

Hyvönen Joonas

In an animated short film Bod Bogy, a human cadaver moves layer by layer deeper into a swamp somehow retaining sentience. Descending, she gets evermore entangled in a hive mind of everything the bog has preserved in itself through time. She, however, gets resurrected into a future society, just as the bog bodies of our times have been raised from the swamps.
