Die Vernandlung


We are all familiar with the iconic absurdist story of Gregor Samsa who wakes one day to discover that he has turned into an insect. In the remainder of the tale, Kafka describes how Samsa’s transformation impacts his family. During the centennial year of the story’s first publication, it maybe a good time to ponder our own individual experiences of metamorphosis and the consequences for those around us.

This amazing animated adaptation of Kafka’s tale was created by Caroline Leaf using sand on glass.
