" Don't Pull the Plug! "

Video screens, neon signs and sound systems compete for attention on facades of buildings. In-between them, EarGuy walks down the yellow bricked street which is crawling with little creatures. By accident, EarGuy makes an amazing discovery about the world he is in. Further exploration leads him to a central power plug...

Made using Side Effects' Houdini on SGI O2 workstations, this is the first 3D computer animation made by Wobbe F. Koning while a MfA student in Art and Technology at The Ohio State University. Depth of Field is used to achieve a more film like quality.
