„A semicolon represents a sentence the author could’ve ended, but chose not to. The author is you and the sentence is your life“ – The Semicolon Project
That is a quote by the Semicolon Project, a project that tries to help suicidal people mostly suffering from depressions or other mental illnesses. Since this quote has been published
the Semicolon has become a famous tattoo symbol for people that wanted to commit suicide but decided to continue their life.
In 2017 In Germany alone: more than 9000 people commited suicide, that’s three times the number of traffic deaths!
In order to raise awareness of this topic, I made this short animation, to depict the struggle that people are going through and try to make them hope.
Struggle, Pain, Fear – VOID; Leave the dark and start your journey, open your eyes and finally see for the first time!
