The initiate of this piece is a 15-second motion challenge that begins and ends with a 250 pixel square in the middle. My idea is to use the square as a metaphor of things that constrains us and trap us.
Playing with dimensions, the square becomes a maze, a room, an elevator or a jam you try to escape from but fail.
To keep this animation clean, I use black and white color with some subtle texture movements in the background. The illustrations are hand-drawn style. Also, I utilize the sound design to advance the story.
