Muto by Blu; surreal wall-painted animation

Fantastic wall painted animation 'Muto' by Blu studio, touching upon themes like multiple identities, morphing bodies, blending of flesh and technology, metamorphosis, and even mind-body dualism as at some point a man's brain starts living an own life and evolves into a new man with butterfly wings, seemingly signifying that the most beautiful self we can become is hidden in our minds and needs to evolve separate from our body. This animation, definitely inspired by genetic engineering, is sometimes a bit silly but nevertheless highly inspirational once you take it seriously that this sort of art can be a precursor to actual developments that become more and more prevalent in our everyday lives.
