Statement



The social commentary I choose to pursue in this short was the seduction of ideology. Individuals like Jesus, Ayn Rand, and Wes Anderson have almost total power to dominate one's beliefs, politics, or aesthetics, and it is the dangers of this allure I wish to illustrate. I intentionally left the ending open to interpretation - does the cube find enlightenment or is it consumed?


Being limited to only cubes, I choose to keep the design abstract, simple, and direct.
