Corpus Misty

Corpus Misty is a soft journey through the private experiences of the femme at heart: women and gender queers with subjects spanning from faith, unity, race, body politics, and mortality.

Our protagonists stories carry the weight of self-questioning, but ultimately tell the story of creating a new reality, so rather then work with the common trope of dark and mysterious aesthetics to enshroud secrecy, our creative team selected to contrast the statements with saturated, colourful, and slightly grotesque world design, brought to life by light animations and hand-sculpted landscapes, as an homage to each story.

Our hope with this project was to promote wisdom and dignity over secrecy.
