Vadim has to get out of the comfort of his own square, something that’s not easy. Out there, there is only the unknown. And the unknown is always frightening. Until we embrace all that it can offer us, the good and the bad.

A box, a jail, a character and the desire to evade. The jump of the gazelle is a movement and a figure of possibility, but it is also the escape from the lion, from the might of the strongest ones. The color schemes and the use of power, the dependency and the strength of the shape trace the vertigo of thought. An animation that grows and ventures on a vertiginous conscience flow.
