    PYGMALION INFECTION SYNOPSIS The animated dance drama Pygmalion Infection corresponds to the latest trends in contemporary dance, and animation that explores human behavior in its interaction with robot dolls, Internet addiction known as "digital heroin," and violence against women. The plot is built as a fantastic love drama between the main character Pygmalion and an android doll. One of the most all-consuming problems of our world, namely loneliness, is being studied. An eccentric sound-music environment, uses the eclecticism of the unique sound of classical music by J.S. Bach, opposed and combined with different sound atmospheres and drum rhythms. In the psychopathology of the 21st century, new all-consuming addictions are taking place, but rediscovered through the eyes of the ancient transformation, the ancient Greek myth of Pygmalion is presented in an eccentrically relevant way. Examining the reflections of the topic in modern times, the statistical forecast indicates that by 2033 every tenth sexual contact in the world will be between a man and an android.

The train journey is a pretext to recall family memories imbued with involuntary memory. The diffuse monosyllabic noise of the moving wagon determines the oscillation between dream and reality. Technically, the animation combines 2D sequences with stop-motion, in order to include the personal collection of train tickets, a list of activities, evidence of which exists, in an album suggestively titled: CNP (abbreviation for ID card). A-frame story where I try to visually illustrate who I was, am, and expect to become into an endless, dynamic and vibrant game.
