Another Space


That which ends in exhaustion is death,but the perfect ending is in the endless. – Stray Birds by Rabindranath Tagore
The story of my animation is about a girl and her gold fish named Alpha. One day, Alpha stopped swimming, the girl was confused and couldn't understand what was happening. She tried hard to find out an answer despite that people keep telling her the truth. To the girl, her love for Alpha is beyond death, and everlasting. What I want to convey in my story is a conflict between life and death. As a living creature, human beings should clearly understand what death is. However, the girl attempted to find the answer with a machine. The computer seems able to pop up the answer easily and instantly, but can an inanimate objet really tell us the meaning of death? Meanwhile, there is a subtle suggestion in the name of the characters. The gold fish named Alpha because the outline of the fish looks like "α"; the little girl named Omega since the shape of "Ω" looks like her hairstyle. They are the first and last letters in the Ancient Greek alphabet, and they represent the beginning and the end of life respectively.
