La Caverna

 

“(…) And first he will see the shadows best, next the reflections of men and other objects in the water, and then the objects themselves; then he will gaze upon the light of the moon and the stars and the spangled heaven (…)”
[Republic – Allegory of the Cave. Plato]

The above quote is the introduction to a wonderfully clever and full of subtleties graphic animation. The most impressive is the fluidity of switching from one scene to the other. Highly enjoyable and requires multiple views.

 


La Caverna is an self-initiated project.

A 2d animation inspired by Plato’s “Allegory of the Cave” and surrealism; both a quest for the truth and the acceptance of the illusion we live in.
