Cutts told BuzzFeed News that the animations are meant to unveil the manner by which human-to-human interaction has become diminished.


The narrative is told through our protagonist and his struggle in vain to find human connection in the world and failing.

The sound of the track is complex and energetic, so I wanted to reflect that in the relentless pace of everything that is going on around him, giving a feeling almost like he's out of sync with the world he lives in.

The video isn't about just cell phones, but also popular images projected through them: At one point, a woman in a tiny bikini and high heels who's undergoing cosmetic procedures grins at the viewer.

Cutts described the point he was trying to make with the piece:


For me the video is about our increasing dependence on technology and about human interaction today, or a certain lack of it.

It focuses on the way tech is changing us, how we have become desensitized and also the general pace of the way we live today, the things we prioritize now.

"Are You Lost in the World Like Me?" is featured on Moby's new album These Systems Are Failing, released Oct. 14.
