Suus Hessling created this touching, yet direct, stop-motion animation for her graduation project at the School of the Arts in Utrecht, The Netherlands. Driven by a fascination for Alzheimer’s and its affect on the brain, Suus goes on to explain, in 4 minutes of stop-motion animation, what happens when you get Alzheimer’s.

Alzheimer’s is a devastating disease not only for the person suffering from it but also the family and caretakers involved. Suus does a wonderful job explaining the gradual mental and bodily decline through the art of stop-motion, which in itself is a slow and meticulous process (Watch the making of Retrogenese).
