In my work I try to use animation’s innate qualities to tell specific stories that cannot be told through any other form. The use of symbols and metaphors in animation and the possibility to strip reality of all noise, makes it exceptionally suitable for distilling clarity out of chaos. This art form bears close resemblance to regular film, but on the other hand is fundamentally different in the way it is constructed. The tension that it creates is something I am keen on exploiting in my work. Other art forms such as sculpture, literature and performing arts also share characteristics with animated film. By being aware of this, I can use elements and clichés from these media to my advantage, but even more importantly; invalidate them as well.
