There is an age-old debate about which hemisphere of the brain is responsible for a particular emotion and I wanted to have my own interpretation of the same.

Creation Tools: AfterEffects & Illustrator | Music: SCAD Stock Audio Library


This project would encompass storytelling using line art and gradients to emphasize the chemical reactions that occur in the body when it feels an emotion.


Before beginning to create this digitally, I was able to practice line art with guidance from a fellow SCAD peer who has been doing the same for years, this was so that I could have some direction while setting up the compositions.

Every stroke and pattern was created using either Illustrator or After-effects depending on its complexity, to have a form that was not available to create from just a single click. Everything created was just experimenting with shapes and effects to conjure a visual representation of the emotion in an abstract form characterized by motion.
