Anxious Body

Animated short film

MIZUSHIRI Yoriko[Japan]


This animation depicts interactions between our body parts (e.g., finger and foot) and everyday tools (e.g., tape and mechanical pencil) through symbolic, flat drawings without shading and shadows, focusing on the glamourous movement and texture of supple skin. Inorganic music relativizes and emphasizes the expression that reminds the audience of the physical feeling, which is usually outside of our consciousness.
