The technique behind Oakland, California-based artist Annie Wong’s (@headexplodie) stop-motion artwork is, at heart, basic: mold, shoot, repeat. But a strong aesthetic informs the process, too, lending Annie’s videos a sneaky emotional punch. “I’m really interested in emotional literacy,” she notes — and her work, from GIF stickers to longer pieces, brings that interest vividly to life.
Drawn to creative endeavors from a young age (“I was definitely known as the arty kid in grade school”), Annie studied photography and painting in college. What she loves about the stop-motion she’s doing now is that it combines many aspects of art making. “There’s painting, building with your hands, lighting, animation — which is like acting — and video editing, which is kind of like filmmaking. It’s where I’ve found my happy place, because I really like playing with all those sorts of materials.” Watch Annie’s “lighthearted interpretation of the cyclical nature of our emotions” on our story and on our IGTV channel.

This image reminds me of my ambition. I do want this to be lost in the crowd. I am a private person n i adore the hell out of it. This pic reminds me of the song, "why are rainbows so high. "

Emotional literacy can change the #gender-equality scene especially in india. If only our men knew emotions. A whole manly man with a little emotion can make him a gentleman. Men with emotions are not wuss. Be a whole manly with very little emotion and you would be irresistible.
