A number of entries from the animated diary by Ami Lindholm, a witty and elegant vizualization of highs and lows in an artist’s life.
Ami Lindholm: Anxiety/Relief is an animated diary, an animation about making of animation. This dark yet hilarious meta-animation uses some of the most essential storytelling methods: loops, exaggerations, metaphoras. A poor artist’s life is repeated on an endless loop of similar situations: no work too much work, everything is great nothing works, I’m the best I’m nothing. This diary is therapeutic for all the people struggling with art. Anyone who deals with a creative work can feel related to these situations.
The diary has been prepared day by day during 20092011 in the technique of drawn animation on paper.
