About this submission

This short animation is nearly finished. I'm still making small edits and have a bit more to do on the sound mix. I have anxiety and insomnia. I started this project after I began seeing a therapist and it changed my life. I'm a visual artist first, so my work begins somewhere in the center and then I start spreading out and editing as I go. This piece is made primarily in stop-motion with paper puppets, sculptures made from recyclables, and ink drawings. I don't script or make preparatory work, I just let the work dictate where we end up. I made all of the art and animation and sound. I'll post a short blurb about the piece below--

An artist’s handmade animation with paper puppets, recyclables and ink.

A love letter to therapy and nostalgia. A love letter to a woman.

A hate letter to migraine auras, pounding heartbeats and night terrors.

A thermometer for emotional temperature.

This is a film about burning up on the search for something true.
