ROCK01 (2012) is a 2D animation made for Erdi Yao’s 2012 thesis project in School of Visual Arts, which tells the story of a robot who finds a way to communicate with limited expression, and ultimately defeat a legion of alien invaders. Inspired by Japanese robot animations and western science fiction, ROCK01 uses a clean and bold vector graphic design style combined with a strong visual structure. The animation merges eastern symbolism with a western narrative structure to create a new language at the intersection of experimental and popular film styles.
