Erick Oh: Heart

Erick Oh is a Korean animation artist based in California and currently working at Pixar Animation Studios. We posted his animated short, 'How To Eat Your Apple' on AR in September 2011, 'Heart' actually precedes this, having been made in 2010. Since then the short has been on a lengthy festival tour before finally being released online.

Produced during his time studying at UCLA Animation Workshop, with the support of Matt Groening, 'Heart' presents questions through abstract metaphors and symbols, illustrated by the human heart. Erick describes the piece as "an exploration of transcendence."
