Description“St(r)ay” was inspired by my father’s dementia, during which he failed to recognize his friends and relatives and even lost his self-awareness. During his illness, I witnessed a person who once had the same complex personality, emotions, love, hate, and life experiences as you and I, drawn gradually by the illness into an empty soul, which prompted me to create an animation completely from a dementia patient’s point of view. Using the patient’s point of view to tell the story, I tried to capture my father’s mood when he stepped unconsciously into the whirlpool of dementia, and explore the value of affection and life.
