What do your furniture rearranging habits say about your relationship with your mother? How does the friction between denim and your mattress affect your mental well-being? Do you feel more alive when there’s a growing pile of clothes on your floor?

Rooms is an ongoing print and film project that explores the connections between mental and physical spaces through conversation, illustration, design, and animation.
