Why I March

The result of the 2016 United States presidential election was shocking and infamous. Vast swaths of the population were instantly thrown into disbelief and existential crisis. The Women's March that followed marked one of the largest and most peaceful acts of civil disobedience in our nation's history. I created title cards that were used in a video documenting this coordinated effort. All titles were hand-lettered to reflect the home made nature of protest signs. Using stop motion, each title begins as an origami rose and then blooms to reveal a different message, symbolizing the beauty, power, and diversity of womankind.
