DESCRIPTION/CONCEPT (500 characters including spaces)

This is a double exposure 3d artwork. This means that if the artwork is viewed through one colored film the image seen is different from that when seen through a different colored film. This artwork shows different parallels to my life. These parallels were most noticeable to me during the Covid lockdown. It should be how a highly ambitious and motivated person like me could be so lethargic. This was a contrast is explored through this artwork.

This frame-by-frame animation is a display of my identity of being a Christian in India. The artwork shows several symbols of my faith represented in the form of a baby angel, a white dove, and a Christmas tree. My Indian culture/identity is seen through the tears of the angel as it drips orange, white, and green. The artwork is connected back to me when the face of the angel breaks revealing my face.
