Depiction of anxiety through the use of human discomfort.

This animation depicts the constant battle between our bodies and our minds. We follow Body as it desperately tries to detach from the consuming weight and complexity of Head. Will he succeed?

Character Design
Head 

Head looks innocent and has a child-like personality. It has basic needs, such as eat, and play. Head doesn’t really think too deeply about the situation. It is in control and doesn’t seem to realise its impact on Body. However, when harmed by Body, Head turns evil.

Body

Body on the other hand, is the adult of the group. It wants freedom and desperately wants independence. Head is too heavy and too controlling for Body.
