"This thesis would consist of psychological explorations of unwanted or unhealthy emotions through the use of dynamic visual metaphors. These emotions are those that one would go through when they are at their lowest point in life. However, This thesis is not inventing a new technique in story telling but is simply a study of using shapes, objects, color and ambiguous movements to depict a certain emotion that the scenario portrays. This study would push the creative mind to explore different dimensions of storytelling."
