Walk (2005)

This piece is inspired in the feelings of fear and helplessness we experience when we are in the midst of having a nightmare.

A nightmare often appears endless to the person who is experiencing it and the faceless character in the continual loops of animation represents the irrational matter that constitutes the essential logic of our fears.

In each panel the fear is explored from a different perspective but looking at it from different angles does not necessarily provide us with a better interpretation of its essential character or purpose and instead, as it often happens in nightmares, any effort to rationalize the situation we find ourselves in can result in an even more distorted sense of reality or a newly modified, although not necessarily less frightening, sequence of events.
