The Happiness of Being a Kid

Happiness and pleasure are the feelings that I wanted to seek for this project. Experimenting with all the traumatized problems I had with my dad when I was young, I want to remind parents/adults to let kids be kids, accept them for who they are, allow them to have fun, and explore the world through their innocence.  


The "Traumatized" image represents the feeling of a child who wants to explore new things, but their parents keep telling them "No." In contrast to the despair, the "Explored" image followed by "Happy" portrays the moment when the child enjoys discovering new things for themself.

Film: The Happiness of Being a Kid

The sound of ceramic leaves combined with the rainfall creates a feeling of relaxation and playfulness for the child to have fun. Children will learn more when adults allow them to be themself and do things in their way.
