In this project, I would like to express a state of mind through art-making. Being a nervous person, I once had a very strange experience during examinations due to excessive anxiety. I would hear loud sounds and see objects moving fast - just turning a metronome to maximum speed. I tried to move my body slowly and calm myself down but to no avail. The feeling was terrible, which made me feel nervous. However, it was strange that I also wanted to laugh at the same time.
Sketching and animation works have been created with the influence of animation artist William Kentridge, who presented the movements of lines which in turn inspired me to create an abstract animation. After understanding more about abstract expression techniques, I tried to express my experience and feelings. Combined with sound production, long exposure photography was used to capture lights and express the unstable mental state caused by stress. I hope my work can reflect the mental stress of urban people.
