Together they create a new, organic world, where the boundaries between monotonous and exciting, real and fictional, monochrome and multicolor are almost nonexistent and define the relationship between micro- and macrocosm.

As it is suggested in the title, the whole action takes place in a loop, emphasizing the repetition, uniformity and homogeneity of animation.

Thus, in the context of the journal, there is a complete self-portrait where the emphasis falls on the little details, whether they are detached from imagination or reality.

The animation has been accomplished by combining several techniques such as 2D digital animation, rotoscopy and full traditional animation.
