Using the technique of cut out animation, Mindless Endeavours is about the artist's brain and it's relationship with skateboarding.
While on her personal endeavours with skateboarding, this has led her to incredible opportunities and experiences. The little bat skater girl represents Meghana and the feeling of transcendence she experiences when she steps on the board. Each scene in the animation is exploring these different feelings of liberation and creativity. I view skateboarding as a type of performative art and it has only helped to further my imagination and creativity in other aspects of my life.
