Treadmills

For my senior year capstone project, I am exploring the feeling of stress, particularly in regard to being successful. In today's hustle culture, I constantly feel like I'm five steps behind everyone else; like I'm not doing enough and no matter how fast I work, I can't ever catch up. So, I created this video as a form of visual research. I put the phrases I personally relate to most in this short animation, rotating as if they are on a treadmill. The increasingly overwhelming word-treadmills represent my feeling that no matter how much or how fast I work, I'm still not successful and I'm taking too long to get there.
