Animated Version of Edvard Munch’s The Scream

(Video Link)

Norwegian artist Edvard Munch explained his iconic painting by writing:

I was walking along a path with two friends – the sun was setting – suddenly the sky turned blood red – I paused, feeling exhausted, and leaned on the fence – there was blood and tongues of fire above the blue-black fjord and the city – my friends walked on, and I stood there trembling with anxiety – and I sensed an infinite scream passing through nature.

What is this infinite scream, and who is expressing it? Sebastian Cosor offered this animated version of Munch’s scene in an attempt to answer those questions.
