Madrid-based Nicolai Troshinsky created this grayscale animated short about a boy who loses his glasses Well, rather, they were cruelly taken away. Yes, cruelly, because anyone who relies on glasses knows that to have them take from you is basically losing a sense. Anyways, where was I?  Essentially, the short is about  feeling lost; Lost in an unknown world that must be navigated unclear.

I loved the bizarre, surreal imagery, that occasionally comes into focus just long enough to make it out.  As a fellow glasses wearer, it also makes me thankful that the few times I do go unaided, I don't have the imagination to see a world that is not there.
