Alexander Pettersson shows us pure animated perfection in 20 seconds

Posted by James Cartwright,

This little 20 second short from animator Alexander Pettersson is pure visual gold. A disembodied head spins round, getting progressively more wounded while various characters and objects float past to a tuneful vocal soundtrack. We can’t really think of a reason for its creation, nor a message Alexander might be trying to convey, but let us assure you it’s an absolute delight.
