Na zdrowie!

Bless You!
Warning: contagious! Germs fly around wildly in the hustle and bustle of urban life. You stand next to the wrong nose, and it happens in a flash. You can even get a dose during an innocent flirt with your potential sweetheart. And what happens if you keep on infecting yourself? Employing expressionistic colour and surreal forms and figures, this animation poses questions about our interactions with one another.
