This particular animation was made to show what it is like to create art with depression. People tend to idealize the “tortured artist”, that when we at our lowest we create our best. Yes, the pieces we create can be beautiful, but to the artist (or at the very least myself) the piece holds those emotions. When we look at the work after it is done, all we can see are those low points. The audience may appreciate what has been created, but we only see the pain that inspired it.
