Trapped in a Cosmic Distopy: Mind the Gap
FILE ONLINE 2018 | GIFS
Electronic Language International Festival
“Trapped in a Cosmic Distopy” is a compilation of seven GIF’S representing the different expressions of a female character who is a prisoner of her own emotions. Her experiences are sometimes surrounded by good feelings, as in dreams. At other times, she expresses agony, fear, and anxiety as if experiencing a dystopia. Portrayed only in silhouette, her appearance is not the focus. As a result, the expression of her feelings is more powerful.
