Memory: a Library in Alphabetical Disorder

In project Memory: a Library in Alphabetical Disorder I attempted to explore an alternative way of digital storytelling which operates with the visual language of graphic novels – an animated storytelling. I was looking at the notion of Reflective Nostalgia by Svetlana Boym. My intent was to communicate a story of my family (it’s female line) through the medium of hand-drawn motion. The process of memory is shown not as a static visual but an animated one. The animations are subtle with a minimum of movement, animated step by step.
