"The world" is an early animation of the Chinese artist Tian Xiaolei. The black and white, abstractly moving forms veritably lure the viewer into an undertow of this foreign, yet peculiar, known world. The associative space is relatively clearly defined through the background noise: the underwater world with sounds of the sea develops into an environment of automated sequences of a machine, finally finding itself in the air, accompanied by a flock of birds, circling with the wind around imposing skyscrapers. The world sketches a picture of a civilizing development; from the portrayal of fauna and flora culminating into architectural and industrial mechanisms of humanity.
