Bridge St (Excerpt): Stop-motion animation on two separete canvases, 2 min. 33 sec.
Created at Traingel Arts Association Residency Program
In this short animation, each constructed scene is based on suggestions from passersby. I would approach individuals that I had never met before and ask them to direct me towards their favorite place in the neighborhood. After going there and sketching the environment I then asked another passerby to lead me to their favorite place and so on.
I painted the scenes from the sketches and from memory onto two separate canvases. Each frame of the animation is layered upon the previous one. In this project I'm interested in exploring the idea of authorship as well as experiencing the aesthetic and personal perspectives of others.
