Description

To visualize my daily struggle with inspiration, I created an AR motion comic titled “Stuck with the Beast.” The beast is a representation of anxiety and fear within my creativity crisis. As the story unfolds, I’ve included a flashback to my childhood memories that explain the origin of the “Beast”. I chose two different media to tell the story: physical (printed comic) and digital (animation). This echoes the tension between the abstract anxiety in the form of the imaginary beast, and the tangible daily life in real world. They are connected through augmented reality, which brings the static image to life.
