Why did you make this work:
I made this series of GIFs for the Bezalel Academy of arts - 9 squares project for their media platform. The brief was to create a total of 9 illustrated gifs that could work all together in harmony but stand by their own too. The theme is a mystical dream with appearing elements influenced by psychedelics, tarot's imagery, and surrealism.

The illustrations are displayed in the instagram platform of the Academy
