Iris van AbeelenIllustrated & Animated Storytelling Den Bosch
Shards of me
Have you ever looked in the mirror at your own body? How do you feel about it? In this animation, the protagonist is struggling with their own body image. While they struggle, they come across their positive image. Will they find peace with their body, or will the idea of being happy shatter into pieces?
This project has been created to show the struggle of body image and how it can feel to be stuck in a negative perception about yourself. We should be able to talk about these subjects and not be ashamed to feel a certain way. As you – the viewer – will be also aware of, we all struggle with our body image at some point in our lives, don’t we?
