Stir Crazy

Class of: 2023

Major: Fashion Design BFA

Medium: Digital animation

Faculty: Mimi Kim

Prompt: The assignment was fairly open-ended. We had to create a 1-2 minute animation of a topic of our choice. It had to use interesting transitions and transformations (i.e. playing with scale, the XYZ axis etc.)

Through my animation, I wanted to address the endless cycles that we are trapped in, but in a playful manner. Especially nowadays when we are home all the time, our days end up being very repetitive – hence the title Stir Crazy. I was also inspired by the work of French illustrator Mallika Favre.
