Artist’s statement

I sought to embody in my artwork a surreal sense of loneliness and confusion while exploring the notation of fate. These concepts have always interested me – are our choices really ours, or is it fate? I decided upon an animation as I required a medium which allowed for a distinct theme. Many of my ideas are the result of hours spent drawing random images around a theme.

On reflection, I would like to have improved the length of the piece: many interesting ideas were cut due to time constraints.
