This short animation makes ingenious use of paints to bring to life a distinct and unique outlook on the notion of a ‘Blue Monday.’ As the festivities of the weekend come to a conclusion, the struggle between work and humanity is expressed through stunning visual transfigurations. Floods of people commuting to work become waves rolling into the shoreline. Men and women reflect the ripples of the ocean crashing onto the shore as a dejected woman looks to break the mould of modern working society.
