Indamora (Excerpt): Stop action animation, ink on glass, 2' 40"

 

This animation is performed and documented directly from life to embrace the present. In this animation, I am using the window view from my studio, where an active scene of construction workers creates the backdrop. By putting acetate on the glass of the window I am able to keep full transparency. I am using a brush dipped in temporary Sumi ink to construct each scene. Each painting is photographed with a digital camera, and then washed away by water poured on the slippery acetate. As each scene is washed away, the unconscious consumption of time is exposed. In this process the confinment to a singular authenticity is forever gone eventhough it has been documented. The documentation serves as an indexical vehicle which captures the past. The purpose of documentation is not to preserve, but to serve as a bridge, connecting the past with the present, the internal with the external.
