For this project, Tillekens digitally animated a loop of a figure repeatedly getting up and going back to bed, making a surprising stop along the way. To achieve this, it was brought into an animation program whereby Tillekens was able to use the camera tool to create movement within his animation, and well as explore the space outside of the original scene.
