Hey guys. I just saw the spring day video and I was just so blown away that I needed to do an analysis on it, right away. So I will analyze the video and look on: how
it is related to the former videos? What do I base my analysis on? I am a psychologist
and had psychoanalysis as my major. And Psychoanalysis is all about analyzing symbols. So I will
analyze the video from a psychoanalytical perspective. Plus Hermann Hesses Demian is
one of my favourite books and I just have read Those who walk away from Omelas.
So this is reliable material to analyze the video. Ok lets start: Alll the videos together are representing
inner development. This sounds kind of boring but its not at
all, because we are not talking about development in terms of gaining years
or simply growing up. But we are talking about a much deeper process, that is almost spiritual.
Exactly this is also the central topic in Demian. So Each video is symbolizing a particular
step of that development. I need you is the beginning of the journey.
All the suffer in the video stands for them ralizing that things need to change. The suicides
are metaphors for killing old parts of themselves. The Prologue is showing the resistence against
the new times that are coming. Before becoming a butterfly the caterpillar is building a
cocoon. The Prologue represents this cocoon. They are dwelling in their comfort zone before
the new stage begins. Run is portraying that they are starting to
take action. They are going through the darkness and are giving themselfes to sin. They are
getting to know their own dark sides. this is a necessary step in human development. Blood sweat and tears represenst them walking
on the edge. The Ikarus pictures in the video, implicate
that they got burned from the sinner life, and are now ready to move on to the next stage. (If you want a more detailled analysis of
the whole stroy check my video that I will upload the next days.) Spring day symolizes the light after the darkness.
It portrays a new beginning. The title is symbolic in itself. Spring comes
after winter. Winter stands for death, and leaving the old
behind. The video begins with death. V knees down
to commit suicide on a railway in winter. This symolyzses the dead of the old stage.
This is a statement for making room for the new. The atmosphere of the video is completely
different to the former ones. It is pleasant and easing. They all are on a a train. Trains stand for
transformation as well. It is again a symbol for going on a journey. The journey is symbollic
for life itself. So it means they are surrenduring to life. Jin finally gave up his camera, that was a
symbol for not participating in the events. He is forming a cammera with his hands, which
stands for old habbits. Even if they are on the way to a new stage, changes come slow,
and the old, is still present. The wahing machines stand for taking care
of oneself. Its a metaphor for cleansing after all the dirt that they have been trough. Jungkook stands infront of an old amusement
park. This is a symbol for that the old pleasures wore themself of. The life full of dull amusement
lies in the past. In I need U, the Prologue and Run, they were
all suffering when being on their own, and being happy when they were together.
For their personal development they needed to face their demons in solitude. The scene when Jungkook is walkig on his own,
but than all the others join in, represents that the demons are already faced, and it
is now time to enjoy and be together. The train passing with Jungkook inside, and
him seeing himself from the outside is a metaphor for reflection. He knows that he is on a path
of development. In all the videos before, there was a lot
of fire. The fire was symbolizing the burning down of the old.
In spring day the only fire is the match Jungkook holds in his hand. He blows it off and it
goes back on. This says that even if they went trough a lot, inner development is never
complete and you always have to be in search of coming closer to your own essence. They are sitting on a mountain of clothes.
Clothes stand for presenting oneself. They symbolize costuming and showing up. It seems
like they are sitting on their past masks. The mountain looks like it is garbage so it
could mean that they are leaving the superficcial and shallow world behind. And most important is the Omelas sign on the
motelroof. Those who walk away from Omelas is a short
story about an utopical city, that is only able to retain the ultimate happines because
there is one trapped and suffering, child caged beneath the city. Everyone knows about
this deal, but nobody does something against it or questions it. Only some are leaving this city, beacuse they
cant live with the fact that their happines is build on someone elses suffering. They are leaving into the unknown. The meaning of this is that everyone who is
questioning existing norms and decides to leave the beaten path, has to create his own
reality according to ones inner calling. The story of Omelas is very up to date. Take
europe for example. All the wealth and good live is build on the robbery that happend
during the colonial era. We are keeping this high standarts by exploiting
other countries economically till to day. I dont even want to start talking about the
U.S.. But the point is clear OMELAS is real. Living in Omelas stands for a life in ignorance. The people who are leaving Omelas are self-aware,
human beings with high moral standarts. Our guys are leaving Omelas. This represents
the development they have made throughout the story. They took the step into the darknes, through
which they got closer to themselves and got wiser. Only through that they are able to
leave Omelas. Ok so that was it. if you are interested in more analysises for
example of the wings videos, or a explanation how the story is related to Demian, or a video
on the meaning of their relationships just let me know in the comments.
