Love this minimalist animation by Alessandro Novelli of Barcelona-based Newgold. “Lights” plays with size, space and perspective to explore the slightly somber theme of the choices we make and what is lost as we fit ourselves in to a particular kind of life. As Novelli explains it:
“The short film talks about how during life we start adapting to the surrounds and we slowly morph into something different from our original self, we adapt to conditions, jobs, people, over-structures, and slowly we fade away.”
