REINVENTED HUMAN - DYSTOPIAN ENVIRONMENT
The repetitive looping frame animation below explores the concerns of social isolation caused by our 24 hour access online through an eery dystopian reality. The removal of the phone highlights its over powering presence within our lives, as the movements and gestures of the characters hands alongside the audio of the animation are so easily distinguishable. When developing the 'Reinvented Human' character I discovered three main elements that I wanted to highlight; distorted hands, a dull face and hunched back. Through playing with exaggeration and disproportion of the illustration the 'Reinvented Human' was born.
