StuckIn burnOut is a senior capstone project taking form through an Instagram page. Burnout is a common, but unique perceived experience. During these unprecedented times of the Covid-19 pandemic, burnout and emotional exhaustion have become more common sensations. However, everyone experiences it differently. Creating an Instagram with colorful illustrative pieces, this project hopes to highlight the importance of the unique experience through a group of students. Using color theory and op-art illusions, the pieces create a feeling of being trapped, unable to move forward.
