The Fall

The animation follows a girl caught in a repeating yet unpredictable dream. She walks through an imaginary space, falling through the ceiling again and again. Old Chinese folklore states that falling symbolizes anxiety, fear and uncertainty in daily life. Each time the girl falls, she goes deeper into the dream, sinking deeper into her anxiety. She attempts to escape but ends up falling once again. Her anxiety is endless. Using hand drawn imagery and hyperchromatic color, The Fall captures how our daily experiences and psychological state translates into our subconscious and physical reality.
