growing pains

Alongside the idea of "youth" and growing into one's self, I'm working on an animation that relates to some aspects of myself and my culture, as an Iranian-American. Although these struggles are personal and have not yet been fully realized, I am presenting them in a whimsical way, similar to how I view them and myself now. I am taking "growing" quite literally and intimately to expose both the desirable and undesirable to better understand how I can situate and understand myself.
