Stop Motion AnimationWake., 2021

“wake.” (2021) embodies the feeling of finally recognising yourself when you look in the mirror. This powerful piece of animation is inspired by watching trans men on YouTube having their Top Surgery reveal and seeing their flat chest for the first time. As a trans man, I can see myself in these videos and have hope that I could be in their position one day. Through my stop motion animations, I hope that the viewer will recognise themselves in the work and find comfort in its familiarity.
