Journey

ABOUT:

Playing house, dressing up in dads shoes, putting on moms make up... mimicry is flattery.  But what if dad is a sociopath and mom is a whore.... still they are idolized in the eyes of their children.

Maybe it's in our nature... And with fewer and fewer children today growing up in stable environments, or even without parents at all, its not surprising the results.  

"It may be bad,  but I remember it being far worse."  Now it's their turn.   I think the sometimes violent and destructive nature of man can be easily seen through the eyes of children.   I mean,  what does the drunken dad or a sociopathic uncle really look like to them.   It's all child's play.   God forbid they copy what they see.  

I may not always be able to see the world,  but they did.   Get ready world...  It's my turn to hold the mirror. 

After a brief showing in the original "Animamix" showcase, this series found itself procured and added to the prestigious Long Museum Collection in Shanghai.
