The Poetry of You

Project pitch

This video is for the class of Motion III at the University of Colorado Denver. Our class was tasked with choosing a poem of our choice and creating an animation piece that will serve as a "poem explainer".

My chosen poem is by Nikita Gill.

You are not small.
You are not unworthy.
You are not insignificant.

The universe wove you from a constellation,
just so atom, every fibre in you comes from
a different star.

Together, you are bound by stardust ,
altogether spectacularly created by the energy of the
universe itself.

And that, my darling,
is the poetry of physics,
the poetry of you.
—Nikita Gill
