Thoughts are often linked with motion. The original idea of the animation was to give such thoughts visual movement, underlining the idea of how thoughts lead to each other, at the same time recognising that each single thought is only momentary and passes quickly away.
The imagery combined with the train journey gives a feeling of how time is in constant motion, changing things around us. People come, people go, thoughts come, thoughts go, scenes are there for ‘the moment’, and then move on. The moment never stays, time never stands still. The purpose of the film is to connect this process of thoughts with the audience and take them on a journey that in fact every person shares.
