"Patient's Mind" is a multi screen experimental animation using circular narration. The metaphor of doctor-patient relationship is used in the work, which shows the process of the protagonist's inner self and superego, the fight for the subject right between the present and the "preset future", and the endless cycle between the present and the "preset future" in the doomed failure of self salvation. In the narrative, the whole story is divided into five parts and placed on five screens. Make the content of five screens form a big cycle in narration, and the content of a single screen form a small cycle in editing, and make the five screens have relevance according to different clues in content.
