Not quite happy with this animation. I understand dementia is meant to describe mental impairment but at least provide some clear insight for what the director wanted the viewers to grasp. My take which could very well be wrong was a statement about nature and multiple personalities. How we say and do things but deep inside feel differently. Almost as if there was another person with in our self. Or it could be in relation to self loathing.
Self loathing is more common in my eyes in women than in men. So, having a women as shown be the main character would
make the most sense. This would also explain the excessive amount of nudity. For those who don't understand what i am referring to it is basically saying i don't like how i was made or the features i was born with. If self loathing was the point it would also explain the flotation movement animation. For when fears something they like to disappear quickly. Although, as for the self copy i can't put my finger to in terms of this idea.
Maybe it is reference to work. After awhile of labor intensive work it will affect the body as well as the mind. To be effect you have to balance both your personal life and the life you live at work. But in terms animation and nudity explanation i can't explain.
Lastly, maybe it is a statement to a sexual encounter at a stranger's residence. You are naked and tired from the 'workout'. You just want to quickly escape and move on. Which would account for the animation, nudity but the dual image.
As you can tell there is more than one take to be made from viewing this short animation. Fortunately or unfortunately, not sure which. There is a follow up to some degree, bonus feature that comes after the so claimed ending if you stick around for the credits. Although, while it is additional footage it seemed to be as barren as the surroundings featured with additional insight. Making wonder if that extra footage was worth it.
