Towards Vesuvius is a six minute animation whose title stems from the quote:

‘How little you know of human happiness—you comfortable people. The secret of a fulfilled life is: live dangerously! Build your cities on the slopes of Mount Vesuvius!’

— Friedrich Nietzsche

I'm interested in conveying the notion of the sublime, where our egos and notion of self are rendered insignificant and we stand at the precipice of the infinite and truly magnificent.
