Question, any idea what the smiling masks supposed to represent?

The word 'personality' stems from the greek root 'persona' , meaning mask. We wear the mask to portray the acceptable image we have been conditioned to. Note how in the video, whenever the masks crack the face beneath is sad and tortured.

The everyday masks we wear are not the real us. We are not who we appear to be. We are who we are supposed to be.

But its all a facade.

Embark on a visionary journey through the fragmented unconscious of the west, and with courage face the Shadow.


From the comments section below the video:


"When Desire governs the philosophy of man, it reflects that we are truly living without, not within."

"Exemplary depiction of the state of western society. Exit the matrix through the ❤."

"It's the inconvenient truth on how society has been influenced by wicked, power/money hungry elites."

"This video promotes the wrongs of our society and everyday world and makes it easy to see however it does not tell us how to break out of that way of living...."

"The funny things is we think we live in a free country. There is no such thing from the outside in. Only from the inside out can we truly be free."

Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.
"He who has eyes to see, let him see, and he who has ears to hear, let him hear...You shall indeed hear but never understand, and you shall indeed see but never perceive. For this people's heart has grown dull, and their ears are heavy of hearing, and their eyes they have closed, lest they should perceive with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and turn for me to heal them." (Isaiah 6:9-10)



Maybe awareness is enough. And if not enough , then a beginning of incentive to change.

One day they will find the picture book of this on a dusty shelf filled with manuscripts and it will be thought of as Nostradamus' other work.

That day is now.

'Persona' is Latin, like in 'persona non grata', not Greek.

Thank you. Un masked lol (or spell check)

You get the point.

ETA: Just wondering what you meant by:


Edited to add that, although well done, as expected, this kind of movie is not my kind, I found it boring, with all the things I was expecting to see.

What 'things' were you expecting to see? Not a trick question or anything, I value your input...

Every time I watch it I see more. Beautifully done. Thanks for bringing it, this is what I come to ATS for. You will not see this kind of truth in the Main Scream.

A psychotic celebration of the cataclysmic darkness in mens
misguided souls. I think it demonstrates a deep convicting
hatred for mankind.

Also demonstrates what is behind the fomented hatred and misguidance.

These kinds of films fascinate me entirely, can't find much about the creator. Anyone know/find anything about him?

According to IMDB he has participated in several known animation movies from big companies.

I did not watch to critique the video-art...I only watched to be enveloped in IT's Gestalt

the 13 minutes...to me.... was a 30 minute span of 13 minutes ...so much crammed into a small package...


about your view:

...I found it boring, with all the things I was expecting to see.

I suspect you mean that the symbolism & depictions 'spoke' the language of the Times (Zeitgeist) and did not present anything new or revised/updated

like I said, I just sat back and viewed/enjoyed/'Groked'... the video's Gestalt
see: "
Gestalt psychology or gestaltism is a theory of mind of the Berlin School of experimental psychology. Gestalt psychology tries to understand the laws of our ability to acquire and maintain meaningful perceptions in an apparently chaotic world. The central principle of gestalt psychology is that the mind forms a global whole with self-organizing tendencies.



 


add to the list of things the 'Masks' represent...and ~political correctness~ along with 'Leftist ideology' both apply

I don't feel brain hacked at all. It was a very apt portrayal of the world we live in.

Definitely full of dimitri symbolism. Experienced it myself.

Breaking through the layers of conditioning to awaken to ones true self.

Better brain hack than trying to dumb folks down.



F### society be yourself!

I think you will find most people in this day and age across the globe fit the description. I don't do either side.

The right and left wing belong to the same bird!

It does bring a message of hope. That if we are to truly awaken ourselves we can make immense change.

IN the same vein, I preferred I Pet Goat, felt it was more subtle in it's symbology. This one is kind of...... obvious.
But entertaining, for sure.

1 = 2

3 = 1

5 is total form, though never as one /Singluar. 7 is not a perfect number IMO, though it is a total form AS ONE.

One has intrinsic duality. A trinity is the essence of many forms made into one.

Thats my brains password. Its everywhere in the universe!

Thank you for this thread. That short movie was awesome to watch, and I am going to recommend to a bunch of my friends to also come here to view 'In Shadow'.

I really appreciate it when folks make threads like this ... about something intellectually deep, artistic, well done, and something that I would be unlikely to ever find by myself ... and totally worth seeing.

Dig it!

Things like the "box" and the "blue pill/red pill", as they act as a kind of key words to a specific audience, the kind of audience this video appears to be directed to.

This is not an art student's video (although the idea may have come to him when he was an art student), this is a professionally made video from a professional that has worked for big studios and that knows exactly how to grab his target audience's attention.

Neither did I, visual arts mean nothing to me as art.

Also, see my previous post, just above this one.

That is no problem at all! I thought it was super! And my immediate thought was, oh hell yes some of the folks on ATS will appreciate this.

I've already shared it on many different platforms. Things like this are powerful! IMHO..

Thanks I was hoping to hear back from you.

I see, I didn't equate the blue / red thing to the matrix, could also refer to republican / democrat. The box for our minds: that we're not supposed to think outside of?

In the beginning the red cube appears high up in the upper portion of the dividing skyscraper. Then its placed around our heads, then it's shattered in the end when waking. Like the ideas to contain our minds are created in the upper stories of mega corporations and then handed down to everyone in the MSM.

Just my take. Hw did those set? Any more?

Further: the box first appears in the beginning after the single sun divides to three, then zooms out to our sun and is eclipsed by a 'cube' shaped planet. Then at @1:0O, the red cube first appears in the upper portion of the tower before being placed around a persons head. The invisible prison for our mind. We discern everything thru that cube shaped, transparent 'filter'.
