I've been touched and inspired by Yael Naim's "Meme Iren Song" to create this animation. A song about her grandma's death, about pain, family, time flying. Despite the emotionally heavy theme, I felt a lot of simplicity and sincerity in it, that I wanted to express. I listened to the song many times, started to draw and see, drawing by drawing, what the movement was creating. I didn't plan much, it was a very instinctive, first animation work.I used three ink pots and did more or less 2300 drawings.
