ABOUT THE WORK
Ramyeon Factory is a short animation based on my imagination of how cup noodles are made. Each scene is put together using illustrated gifs and synced up with natural sounds recorded around NTU School of Art, Design and Media.
TYPE OF WORK
Cup noodles are being made from Rapunzel’s long wavy hair. As the noodles run through the conveyor belts, they depart on a journey through peculiar process stations before arriving at its final destination – the convenience store. There, a customer (who looks strangely like Rapunzel with short hair) takes one off the shelf. As the noodles cook in hot water, the little ingredients come alive and break into a silly dance. Here, the diegesis runs in a circular cycle, where it starts and ends with Rapunzel’s appearance.
