Anchor your heart

Anchor your heart, is a stop-motion animation made with plasticine, found objects and drawing. This animation is a dreamlike sequence of characters expressing themselves through gesture and touch. Strings braid and transform into spider webs, flower petals assemble into a bird and deconstruct, folding themsleves into an envelope. Colored paper layers move in collage like fashion, as characters present themsleves and drift apart.
