Embracing the Power Underneath Each Scar
The social psychology of feeling motivated and unmotivated by the challenges of life are often tied to experiences that start in the home and with family life. Many people struggle to cope with low motivation, feeling alone and isolated even from those closest to them. Connecting with other people about the universality of these shared experiences can provide some comfort and relief to those struggling to overcome these internal and external battles with the self.
Through a series of design animations and objects, this thesis invites the audience to explore some of the unusual methods different people use to overcome their life obstacles. By exploring both the mechanics of game design and the emotive qualities of animation, the project asks the audience to reconsider how flaws might be viewed as a strength by creating something that is both beautiful and extraordinary within individuals and their work.
