“Dear Universe” Animated Short by Jeejung Gabin Kim

Brooklyn animator/illustrator Jeejung Gabin Kim: “For the longest time, I have been wondering how perception plays an important role in my life and has made me the person I am now.

“‘Dear Universe’ captures the journey of perception, from the moment fragments of life form complete bits to their eventual storage in a vast cognitive library.

“When this space collects enough data, it generates a seed that travels through various stages of the mind-landscape and morphs into a large and complex shape to give birth to a solid form: a concept.

“Pieces of accumulated concepts motivate actions within an individual and become the foundation blocks that build a being into a conscious organism.”
