How did you make this work:
My project is an empathic ensemble of associative imaginary with the main topic trauma and resilience. I had a bunch of traumatic circumstances in my childhood which mainly left physical scars, but this let me think about it more deeply. what did those traumatic events leave inside the psyche? After a lot of research and interviews with mentally affected i created these images and animation.
