Who Are You Wearing? Is an experimental animation invading the construction and performance of the self. It is a personal exploration of the pressure to assimilate and perform cultural identity. The film stems from a personal reflection over lockdown of how I have found myself performing identity and wearing a mask to transform into a more acceptable version of myself and the isolation that follows this.
Through visual and audible collage an overwhelming party atmosphere is created as the protagonist changes their mask, they fail to fit into the party and their reality fragments throughout the night. The film engages with the chaos and textural aspects of a party. While the loud colours and collage play into the fragmentation of the protagonist. This is then contrasted by the slower live action scenes where the audience is faced with a person in crocheted masks examining their costume and facing the anxiety to return to the party.
