Synopsis


In this animation, an ear is searching for a mouth to listen to, but it only encounters unpleasant voices. Meanwhile a mouth is searching for an ear to speak to, but it only encounters a ‘buzz off’ sound. In our lives we may hear unpleasant things that we don’t want to hear, or find that we cannot control what others would say. We may also hear something pleasant one day, and wonder if the sentiments are fake – wonder if it is a trap. Our innocence might be taken, put inside a box, and never be opened again. Or are we the hypocrites that set traps and pretend to be nice?
