Project description

'Koan' is the second animated short based on a track by composer Daniel Mulhern.

Curiosity is engraved into the DNA of mankind and as a species we constantly explore to seek understanding of the world around us. Since the beginning of our time we have documented and mapped our findings on our way towards unlocking the answers hidden from us. But the more we push to pursue and unravel, the more complex and unclear our path seems to become.
Perhaps we are not meant to understand everything, or be in control of the world around us. Nature was never meant to be tamed.
