Title: The confusion of an empathic introvert

Medium: Animation

Year: 2020


Artist Statement:

My animation dives into the life of someone finally coming to terms with themselves as an empathic extrovert. I have spliced together four situations that I deal with on a usual basis; many could be viewed as introverted as I once thought myself. The story of your life is not always clear or properly formulated ‘til years down the road, including your personality and how you work in the world. The colours chosen for the animation are colours associated with my physical view of the world from the bright yellow of my comfort clothes to my favourite colour, which is teal.
