This blog post will be divided into two sections as the amount of work I have generated since my last blog (“Psychological hellish twilight zone”) is rather significant. I will include the final animation in part 2 along with more explanations of the thought process. I have decided to spend more time on this project to challenge myself learning new skills and trying to reach higher standards of my work.

For centuries hearing hasn’t been considered as an important sense and along with touch has been seen as a weak, basic animal sense. Since vision has been seen as the noblest, hearing has been put on the side and the importance of it underestimated.

They say words can kill but what if we kill words. When what we say no longer makes sense and it doesn’t matter. The things that we say no longer come from what we think but how we have been influenced to think. We think he have a freedom of word whereas nowadays we have no freedom.
