There’s something mesmerizing about this short video, Stillicide, by Eric Ko. Maybe it’s watching the drawings of houseparts floating around like they’re in soup, or the otherworldly sounds (by Alex Cook) floating in the background that make the video a delight. The only kind of story I could piece together from this video is that a someone dreams that both he and his house are falling into a¬†kaleidoscope. The video was made by Ko for an intermediate animation class at RISD.

    from the name i think the video is about suicide. it seems to me that the character wants to end his bleak like and hope fully go to a better place. he is dreaming of what it might be like after life but at the end he realizes it has all been just a dream, and everything snaps back into place.

    I think it’s a little deeper that that, but then I’m a cynic. Nice piece Eric. I feel one of your top three.
