Techspressionism spotlights human emotion as the originator of creative expression regardless of the technological basis of the medium. The artist’s internal voice drives the artwork into being. This same channeling from internal emotion to external expression is a central theme in my animations, as they reveal inner realities out-loud. “Flora’s Dance” is a collective renewal of hope. It captures how individual wishes bloom into chorus when combined with others, reminding us – our hopes are not alone.
