Inspired by my own experience, I compose a life of an unreal animator. The story is about how an animator extends her life by art. The lead is an aged woman. After her only child has grown up, after she has sacrificed many years for family, she pursues a new life – to find something interesting for herself. Impacted by some traditional tales, she's curious about afterlife. Where will it go? If energy is sustainable, will any matter be released from dead body, be slowly accumulated or be shaped as another form of life? In order to release her complicated emotions, in her last few years, she deals with memory, mundane life and imagination to create an art piece.
Yiyi Ma is an animator from China. She studied at the Communication University of China (BA) and School of the Art Institute of Chicago (MFA).
