    The Party at the end of the Earth…
    (…are you going to take this lying down or dancing?)

    This animation is partly inspired by the experimental “cutup” work of many artists, writers and
    musicians of the last 100 years including Naked Lunch by William Burroughs (1959) – “a
    frozen moment when everyone sees what is on the end of every fork”. It is also partly inspired
    by my feeling a lack of understanding current events surrounding the collapse of the world
    trade centre and the attack on terror.

    The kid sits in his room paranoid and delirious... poised on the brink of insanity, plagued by
    paranoid psychosis. But the mask is calling. The time is now.

    With the masks magic powers he fliess across the fields of conspiracy chased by the tentacles
    of technology.

    A rave on a cliff at the end of our world. The event horizon. A cure for sanity.
