Artist’s statement:  

Insides combines cut-paper, stop-motion with hand-drawn animation to tell a disjointed story about self-isolation and neurosis, inspired by my experience in quarantine. The animation takes place in a single room. Curtains blow in the wind, doorways appear and disappear. A ceiling fan, a houseplant, internal organs and a broken sculpture engage in a looping dance. The looping mimics the repetition of daily life, implying that the absent protagonist (or the viewer) is trapped in a loop. Meanwhile, outside creeps inward and inside bleeds outward. The animation explores what happens in the intersection of comfort and fear, reality and fantasy and interior and exterior, both of the body and the architecture of home. "Insides" is a restless daydream peppered with pandemic anxiety.”
