Remnants (stop-motion animation with leftovers from 30 States matrix)
Remnants of 30 Stages. History should never be forgotten or thrown out... no matter how messy it may become.
Erasing (stop-motion animation of continuously erased graphite drawing)
Erasing the history of a laborious process. Confusion, panic, frustration, and questioning my motives.
Rubbing Out (stop-motion animation of continuously smudged graphite drawing)
Smudging the history of a laborious process. Fantasy, delusion, and distorting validity with the same hand that professed it.
Filling (stop-motion animation of continuous additive drawing)
Filling in voids. Absurdity, revisiting past events.
Inward/Outward (stop-motion animation with magazine cut-outs)
Scan, nudge, scan, nudge, scan, nudge, scan, nudge, etc...
Streaks Inward/Outward (stop-motion animation with magazine cut-outs)
