My Existential Friends

Die cut poster & stop motion video

For this project,the aim was to understand meaning of image and object and to leverage metaphor in storytelling. We were asked to curate a collection of our own artifacts or things, and to tell a story about ourselves, our interests, or experiences through the collection. When I was younger, my Auntie and I used to go antiquing. I started a collection of vintage salt and pepper shakers shaped like animals. I thought to use the critters to tell a story about some big life decisions I’ve made. Since salt and pepper shakers come in pairs, they play devil’s advocate with each other to contemplate important questions. The final result is a kitchy comic book style booklet that folds out into a poster.
