Human Humans
2D computer animation, 2:45 minutes

Human Humans is an ironic allegory about a pig, a cow and a philosopher. The animation is comprised of four short narratives, each having a visual style reminiscent of road signs. The animation and text allude to humanity's transformation from an agrarian lifestyle to a globalized existence based on consumerism, mass media, impudence, aggression and discrimination. Each narrative ends with a cow emblazoned with a prohibitive text message.
