The Safe Place

Institute of Designers Ireland, winner for Moving Image Design, 2021
Exploring the places and spaces where we feel safe, I created the dreamland that is The Safe Place. This is a journey to go on with your mind’s eye, stay as long as you like. The guided meditation is informed by the tactile & physical world we reside in.

In the making process, I spent a lot of time observing small and cosy spaces and reflected that in the animating process. I often used small notebooks, post-its or miscellaneous papers to create the “quaint” effect.

I animated every piece traditionally with a small home-made lightbox. I used my tiny little macbook pro to edit with my tiny little hands. Also, I almost fell asleep in my tiny little room many times when editing as it lulled me to sleep....
