1. “Wandering” is a non-narrative experimental animation, a collection of random images and sounds associated with an aimless walk through different scenarios. The elements from the real world are visually transformed into abstract forms and textures, making them close to the visuals of dreams while also reflecting the abstract quality associated with memories as fragmented images. The imagery becomes part reality and part imagination, evoking memories and feelings, focusing on a contemplative, emotional and sensitive experience.

  2. Experimental animation that simulates a game where papercut pieces make up characters and actions, resulting in different narrative possibilities. Both aesthetic and sound reflect a childish universe.
