Twilight Galaxies (excerpt): stop action / motion animation, mixed materials, on a single canvas, 7 min.: 51 sec.

Created at LMCC Work Space Residency Program

Acquisition: Utah Museum of Fine Arts

 

This animation short was inspired by immigrant holiday ceremonies.

For the background I painted images of real and imagined galaxies. In the foreground I animated common objects that are found from these gatherings.

These objects echo the transitory state of these ceremonies, becoming the new icon that defy a specific cultural association. As banal as they appear or void of originality, these objects can be a transmitter for a possible utopia through interaction, exchange and unstill-ness. 

For sound I used galactical waves translated to sound waves and audio samples from the ceremonies.
