The imperfect Human is an audiovisual work with the intention to develop an existential-motion-picture reflecting the concepts of self-portraiture. It’s an exploration of drawings and imagery that represent the idea of identity and persona through a journey of memories and analogies. The animation can be seen as self-moving-portrait inspired by the Diary of Frida Kalho.
