When we try to reach the unobtainable...

Hats off to Dr. Deb for posting this on her blog. This video called "Doll Face" by Andrew Huang, a director, animator, and artist in Los Angelos, is very interesting. The opinions from you tube viewers were various. Some said this piece was beautiful, amazing, powerful, incredible, sad. Others said it was creepy, eerie, haunting. I think it could be described as any of these terms. Personally, I think it's a thought provoking work with a great message.

I've never seen this film before. It's amazing and I completely understood what was trying to be said. I think in a lot of ways, people with EDs are that robot.

So very moving. Each and every part.

"Julia" and Gbml, I agree with both of you. I just think this piece is so profound.

Wow, I got anxious just watching it. I knew that the chain was going to break, that she was just reaching too far and too high, and the image was receding just a hair too quickly.

Whew. It gives me the chills.

Ai Lu, yes that chain breaking and the robot desperately grabbing for it is both a startling and sad image. I definitely think Huang wanted to leave people in chills, thinking, in awe.
