THE DISEMBODIED LADY
short animation based on a story from Oliver Sack’s The Man Who Mistook His Wife For A Hat, a book of neurological case studies
in which the lady in question loses her sense of proprioception, or the sense that your body is your own. to break her paralysis, she has to consciously move herself in a parody of natural movement. this eventually becomes unconscious and she is fully mobile again- but her movements still seem strange and awkward.
frame by frame animation, made up of 267 hand drawn cells
the book is AWESOME and i highly recommend it!
