SIMIO reflects on todays world. The concept and title of Flat Earth represent a story about people who follow someone else’s actions and opinions without ever asking “Why?”.
The saxophone, played by Rolf Delfos, suggests someone that stops and asks such questions. While at the same time SIMIO, representing the mass, chaotically moves around him.
It’s easy to repeat someone else’s words and act like they’re your own. But are they really true to you? And are you being true to yourself? It is baked into todays world to follow one another and do as you’re told. It’s important to ask questions and hold up a mirror that sometimes reflects an image you don’t recognise or want to see. To face that image is a necessity to move forward as a person and ultimately as a society.
