Was Going To

By Ellie Strayer

Music: "Otherside" by Perfume Genius

This piece is about the specific feeling of numbness you get when you’re stuck in a routine. It’s very much a response quarantine, and it’s very much gathered from the emotional and sensory responses of someone in a post-grad position watching the rest of the world fall apart. This piece is primarily a claymation, however contains elements of frame-by-frame animation, watercolor, and pen on paper. It also includes footage from the window of a plane during a flight from Denver to Boston at the very beginning of the world unraveling (March, 2020).
