"The Nutritionist" by Andrea Gibson

Kinetic Typography

Andrea Gibson, an American poet and activist, performs spoken word poetry about a variety of topics including gender norms, the struggles that LGBTQ people face in society, politics, and social reform. Their poem “The Nutritionist” was inspired by the journey they went through trying to get help to be happy. This kinetic typography of the first bit of the poem was an exercise in animating text for Richard Borge’s Adobe After Effects class.
