Rosa expresses her confusion, difficulties of being an adult, depression, and thoughts about life and death through various materials like animation, drawing, painting, and screenprint. She especially focuses on the confrontation of some unexpected incidents in the process of becoming an adult. By referencing the stylistic way of writing in a poem that uses symbolic elements to deliver the poet’s abstract thinking, she researched how to express abstract thought with metaphorical figures.


Although the subject of her works is quite heavy and serious in themes, the way that she delivered her ideas is ridiculous, humorous, and uncanny. The vivid colors, childlike drawings, and metaphors that she used make the audiences feel both poignant and funny and gives them some paradoxical views of their life. Through her works and by showing scars of her own honestly, she wants people to be able to look into their own hearts, feel something about their life, and console their hurts.

Through the two different versions of the animations, I want to share my emotion, complex ideas about the world, life, and death with viewers. By expressing the works with vivid colors and playful sounds that contrast with the dark theme of the work, audiences feel sense of melancholy and uncomfortableness. On the ‘I’M FINE. YOU?’, I expressed about the circle of life, human beings, and my depressed emotion with the metaphorical figures of ‘salmon’ and ‘cloud’ that I have been used on other painting works. And also, on the ‘YOU WILL BE ALWAYS WITH ME.’, I addressed my anxiety and stuffiness after lockdown, thoughts about human selfishness and human nature and hurts from them. The animations are expressed with different figures on each work but both of the works talk about how I feel, how I see the world, and the things that I cannot bear to say in reality. In other words, to me, these works are like showing my diary to audiences and share my feeling with them.
