Princess Tutu: The True Epilogue

"Big Cheese" Chi Nguyen

Once upon a time, there was a man who died. The final story he spun was going to be a brilliant tragedy. However, the story had an unexpected happy ending, and it was triggered by a duck that the man himself had called into the tale. And then there was another man, who began writing a story. And that story, full of hope, has only just begun. All the people in the world wanted to hear the continued story of Princess Tutu, especially a third man writing his own story. So, on behalf of his home world, the third man prayed to the gods to revive Tutu, and asked Tutu about willingly returning as herself. Both the god Apollo and Tutu agreed for the princess to return for her new followers - her new friends, with the permitted revival to prove her new faith and loyalty.

For Princess Tutu

"Big Cheese" Chi Nguyen

In honor of the returning Princess Tutu, I am putting on my own ballet. The painting is the setting for the story: a party at the lake. I am backed up by flocks of birds dancing along. And I set out to dance my heart out along with our guest of honor, just like our guest of honor! Based on the anime Princess Tutu by Ikuko Itoh.

Glitched

Guadalupe AV (Lupis)

Glitched is a digital art project which consists on a short animation that demonstrates my experience with anxiety. In today’s society, mental health struggles are often not talked about due to the discomfort some might feel towards the topic. Oftentimes it is seen as something to keep to oneself in order to not be a burden to the people we care about. This used to be me whenever I would have an anxiety attack or feel extremely anxious. I used to keep these struggles to myself, in fear that people will view me as weak or make those whom I care about worry about me. I did not want to feel like a burden or have people pity me. I despise the idea of having people pity me, which is why I would always swallow my problems to myself, making my anxiety worse. Therefore, I would like for the audience who are going through a similar struggle as me to know that they are not alone in this battle through this animation. There is nothing to be ashamed of when struggling with mental health problems. At the same time, I want to show the viewers what goes through my mind whenever I have an anxiety attack. Oftentimes, some people dismiss these attacks as “nervousness” or “overreacting”, making the person feel guilty or ashamed of themselves. With this animation, I hope to change the viewer's perspective towards mental health struggles and perhaps make them reflect.

nowhere to go

Lily Wang

'nowhere to go' is about the lack of options, supplies, and emotional outlets during this time of lockdown. As a modern society we have not faced something like this before, and the economic, social, and emotional repercussions will mark its place in history. People who have lived during this time of crisis will remember that during the first few months of panic, people rushed out to stockpile supplies despite the apparent absurdity for certain items- people could not buy toilet paper, even though its rate of consumption would likely not change that drastically during a lockdown. Absurd as it was, as a society, it's worth it to remember and contemplate the choices people make as a group during a pandemic situation, should it arise ever again.

This project dedicates to my dad who didn't make it to my graduation. He might not be with me physically, but he's always in my heart. These are some of the last images I took for him with his life pleasures, coffee and cigarette.
