Master Of Animation, Games & Interactivity

In response to the week's theme of Time, I made a short pixel animation named 'Time' Of philosophers.I want to concretize different philosophers' concepts of time with different form of water.
I represent time as water flow, and fish represents the subject (Philosophical). Starting from this, I want to explore how to express the concept of philosophy as the image of entity. I chose seven philosophers (Lao Tzu, Confucius, Aristotle, Augustine, Kant, Heidegger and Derrida),and consulted the relevant literature on their views about time. Because of my limited and poor philosophical attainment, I dare not say that I have a good understanding of these philosophers' discourse about time. This is just a collection of some of my feelings, or the thoughts of philosophers reflected on the sujbect of me.
I got some inspiration from the cartoon The Dao Speaks Whisper of Wisdom. It is adapted from cartoons by cartoonist Cai Zhizhong, and aims to make children feel Lao Tzu's philosophy. It expresses abstract and complex philosophical concepts through simple language and images.
