Nothing ever happened is an experimental animation that illustrates a surreal internal landscape occupied by child creatures and animal imagery. A child goes off to school and must reevaluate everything they have known. Relationships between the objects, animals and sound create a commentary on seeing and invisibility as experienced by the body.
The menacing feeling of animalistic predators and prey seeps into every scene, as odd sexual metaphors manifest with alien-like qualities. Everything points against one of the narrative claims that, Nothing ever happened.
