Skhizein by Jérémy Clapin

Jeremy Clapin in his animation Skhizein created a character, Henry, who has been shifted 91cm from his physical self. It is an "exploration of the metaphysical implications of place" as well as self-separation highlighting Henry’s confounded psychological state. The "main character is ultimately hounded by his own displacement, reassuring himself, 'I am here, I am here, I am here...'" [Barnum-Swett, 2011].
