"Who shall say where the one ends, and where the other begins?"

The Boundaries of Life and Death is a lovely short animation inspired by the Edgar Allan Poe quotation;
"The boundaries which divide Life from Death are at best shadowy and vague. Who shall say where the one ends, and where the other begins?"

I just watched this five times. Beautiful and such a good interpretation of one of my favourite Poe quotations. Thanks for posting.

I know you've got Saskia Kretzschmann in the tags, but I think she should be explicitly credited with having created this.

There is no death;
Lifelessness is only a disguise,
Behind which hide,
Unknown forms of life.
