This is a stop-motion animation I created for a haiku that I heard on PsycHacks on YouTube:

O snail!
Climb Mount Fuji
— but slowly, slowly.

Haiku “O snail!” shared by PsycHacks.

As Orion discusses, the poem has several interesting aspects. A snail is a snail, and can’t run like a hare. It can still have the ambition to “climb Mount Fuji”. Yet it will have to do that within its nature (again, it can’t run like a hare).

I created the stop-motion animation as part of my studies at TUS Limerick, as part of an M.A. on Art, Psyche and the Creative Imagination.
