This was my collaboration for Pop-Up Magazine, a magazine performed live. The shows feature never-before seen or heard multimedia stories performed on stage by writers, radio producers, photographers, filmmakers, and musicians. The show happens every year in several cities in the US.
Escaping a room, escaping work/city/nature, escaping a mindset, identity, escaping from your past and future? This project was a journey to explore how to escape in an abstract way, in a contemplative piece to watch. The project was inspired by minimal and clean shapes, like doors and eyes, but for the most part, abstract forms. In the animation, we were looking for organic and smooth transitions, morphing all the time. The design, animation, and music were synced in perfect harmony, leading a poetic flow for the entire piece.
