The short experimental animation is a take on identity, portraiture and perception. The project is an attempt to reflect on the complex idea of self.

I used a mind-mapping and social media survey to determine the relatable factors. The identity is a unique concept that involves a spectrum of emotions, qualities, experiences and external components. Majority of participants choose more than one element among the non-internal factors: social, environmental, cultural, financial, occupational.

We all may value various things, but the ability to experience is something we share. Our perception shapes the reflection in the mirror. The way we see ourselves is crucial, as we project the same values onto others. The nature of self is always evolving and changing. We are constant work in progress. What do you value? Are you aware of yourself? Who do you see in the mirror?
