Project Amelia

  • September 20 - November 3, 2019

  • SOLD OUT

Project Amelia: Take Control. A woman's face is split into several panels which feature different emotions - frustration, peace, satisfaction, and aggression. As the video progresses the panels change and glitch.

The world moves fast. Every day there’s a new crisis, a new gadget, a new diet, a new obligation. Slowing down doesn’t feel like an option, and the constant pressure of everyday life can be overwhelming. But, does it have to be? What if you could let go without letting anyone down? What if responsibilities weren’t yours alone?
