Average Happiness

7 min, 2D Computeranimation, Langfilm / Bernard Lang AG, 2019

 

 

Synopsis

 

During a PowerPoint presentation, statistical diagrams are breaking free from the strait-jacket of their coordinates. A trip into the sensual world of statistics begins. Pie charts are melting, arrow diagrams twisting, scatter plots, bar graphs and stock market curves join in a collective climax.
