Contemporary Pressures

For my current animated film project, I conducted research by constantly walking, observing, and drawing to record daily life and collect “contemporary pressures”. I was inspired by my travels during winter break where I found how nature can give people healing power and relieve people's stress. I observed public parks, botanical gardens and recorded people and nature that I saw during the trip. I allowed my hand to lead my brain.

I will try to find some binary oppositions, both through visuals and audio. For example, I found a couple arguing while walking their dogs in the park. I assume it is stress caused by their relationship, even in this environment that should be used to relieve stress.
