An animated series of interviews about moments of happiness. Glücklich is an exploration about happiness. I noticed that for a lot of people happiness is the ultimate goal in life. I started asking people about the last time they felt truly happy and many were not able to recall. They could however recall the last time they were feeling sad. I personally don't believe that we can achieve an absolute state of happiness but that we have to learn to appreciate and remember the small moments we enjoyed. Glücklich is a collection of smiles and memories asking the question when was the last time you were truly happy?

Short animation highlighting an object from the Cooper Hewitt collection. The Collection of the Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum is extensive and completely open source. This project was about highlighting one object from the collection on Instagram to make design and design history more accessible to the public. I chose a handkerchief of the Holland America Line (1920) Gift of Mr. and Mrs. Simeon Braguin, a souvenir and probably never used to wipe tears and snot. I was drawn to the dichotomy of emotional qualities and practical use.
