The looping animations present bodies splitting from each other, the birth and reabsorption of identical homunculi, a moth expelling and re-swallowing gases after being suffocated in candlewax, stark red needles breathing painfully, a piece of paper crumbling and straightening. I was interested in representing feelings of loss of control, stagnation and denial; of finding just enough satisfaction to feel unable to break out of the loop. I looked into Tracey Emin and the way the unpolished, casual appearance of her sketches gives them a confessional tone and an honesty that comes from the quick, unfinished lines. That was another dimension that I wanted the animations to have, to create a sense of intimacy with the viewer, enhanced further by the use of sound, an uncomfortable and slowly desynchronising breathing.
