this skin we're in

We’re making tea amidst the rubble.
The house is feeling fragile.
If you yell the walls tremble and let the light in.

'this skin we're in' is a drawn animation about domesticity, family mental illness, and daily life in the aftermath - set in the shifting borderlands of fact and fiction, you and me.
