The nature of the machine can be compared to the mechanics of the natural world. Both at times bring health and prosperity in life, while at other times, destruction and death. Through animation, I'm sharing a glimpse of a relationship between nature and machine. Freedom is often associated with the vastness of nature, and therefore it can be said that the closed-off repetitive inner workings of machines can be associated with the lack of said freedom. Cobi seeks to be free. The mech seeks to perform its tasks.
