The Bathers

The Bathers is a short animation about three women washing themselves in nature and caring for each other. They represent my ideal version of female friendship. These women understand each other’s wants and needs and are completely at ease with each other. They perform rituals that only they know the purpose of, but through this tactile animation, they allow viewers to take a glimpse into their alternate reality.
