Short video for Breakfast – Absence, in a surreal world absence strengthens the heart

Absence Alex Goddard | Collater.al

The video Absence, signed by the animator, Alex Goddard, is halfway between a creative exercise, an experimental video, and an illustrated poem. Everything starts with the quote “Absence makes the heart grow fonder” and then, while the narrating voice continues to praise a poem in rhyme with this phrase, the images follow the words.

But as we all know, sometimes to make a rhyme you have to sacrifice reality, and then we are accompanied in a world that is becoming more and more surreal, but where the only thing that remains seems to be a deep sense of loneliness, lack.

What Alex wants to convey to us is a deep sense of bewilderment and sadness, but without forgetting that it is in periods of absence that the heart is strengthened.
