This is my major work for my year 12 visual arts course that took overall about 8 months to complete. I had never animated anything before so this was all a new experience for me and allowed me to enhance my creative skills as an artist with the hopes of pursuing a career in the animation and graphic design field.

My work is representative of growing up and our interactions and experiences with the world around us, specifically how music and film, can shape who you are as a person. In my animation I use surrealistic imagery inspired by pop art, psychedelia, album covers and comic books from the 60s and 70s. Also the films of both Stanley Kubrick and Wes Anderson. My animation explores themes of growing older, infatuation and existentialism and death and how it affects us during our lives. The decision to base my animation around space stems from my personal fascination and fear of space and the mystery that surrounds it The title ‘Voyage of the Apeironaut’ stems from the combination of the words ‘Astronaut’ and ‘Apeirophopia’ which is the fear of eternity, outlining that the main character is not exploring the stars, rather infinity.
