In his six-minute animated film titled (OO), Seoro Oh explores the nasal passages and shows us different imagery as well as metaphors that describe what it feels like to have a runny nose and a sneezing fit. As someone who has also been plagued by rhinitis, I empathize.
Never before have we seen a story about the nose and its perils so expressively represented. The pain, discomfort, and gross aspects of being sick, the way our nostrils can so wildly change dynamics, all of it is explored through dramatic, colorful, and fascinating motion and sound. Take a look, and see if you can relate to this beautifully made film.
“I’ve suffered from rhinitis since I was a child. Many unpleasant things happen in my nose on a regular basis — especially during the change of seasons. I wanted to animate the feeling so people could empathize.” – Seoro Oh
