Subject Matter: Language Barrier
Special Thanks to Ko Maruyama
This motion project represents what language barrier feels like. It is based on real experiences that happened to me when I first came to the U.S. At that time, my English was poor, and I had a variety of misunderstandings when I talked to American people. For instance, when I first heard ‘strawberry’, I had no idea it was the name of the fruit. While I knew it, I Felt amazing and I ask myself where the straw is in strawberry. After a few years, I would like to translate the interesting experiences into a motion graphic. Language barrier feels like ‘spacing out’, which means you are not in the moment, that your mind is somewhere else.
Language Barrier formulae:
Butter + Fly = Butterfly
Straw + Berry = Strawberry
Rain + Bow = Rainbow
They are transformed from one object to the other object in this looped animation.
