The video reflects on juvenile suicide. It is an attempt to visualize the complications of suicide trying to understand the motivation. It is like an act of mourning in order to accept and live with it.
"Suicide warp" depicts the shadow of one person swinging on a swing. The person doubles and triples while parts of them seem to stretch towards the edges of the image forming black blocs. In the beginning the person is actively moving but is soon motionless hanging in the oscillating swing until the swing cedes to move. Noise and music change according to the force of oscillation and irregularity of movement and evoke an environment of conflict.
