When we all met (Excerpt): Stop action animation, mixed materials on mylar, 3' 54"

 

"When we all met" is based on my experience where all members of my family were reunited after years of separation. I use graphite pencil, acrylic paint and photo collage on Mylar. Mylar's plastic surface allows graphite pencil marks to float over the ground, which facilitates erasure and allows subsequent scene to develop. To make this animation I photographed a drawing then erased it and drew over the same surface for the next frame. In this animation scenes are constructed, then deconstructed, collaged, then decollaged. This process allowed me to keep the past while moving forward.
