Semblance

Semblance is a five part series of 1/1 animated portraits. Often times people are taken at face value, never delving below the surface of first impressions. But what if we could see the fire raging behind their eyes, what if you could see the water that floods their mind or a thousand vines of intrusive thoughts. Each edition aims to shine a light on the continually stigmatised subject of mental illness that much of Western society, in particular men, struggle with in silence. This collection, exclusive to Makersplace, celebrates emotional vulnerability, presented through an exploration of WhereIDraw’s own ongoing battles with mental illness. Each piece is represented by a different element.
