Hello! I am an OU senior studying sculpture. Currently, I am working on stop motion animation & performance video art. My thesis show is in the spring, so I am in much need of technological guidance. I am grateful to Nathan Berger, for lending me camera equipment and a projector. I have started to explore a sort of personal narrative style of filming, one I hope to refine for my thesis show.
In Bravery/Hero, my most recent piece, I am breaking down formal associations within Western culture by montaging together stop motion animation, found footage, and personal footage. In my work, a frequent theme is the exploring the female experience. The installation, Bravery/Hero, was located in Seigfred Hall, room 123. Objects that appeared in the video were featured alongside the projection,casting shadow onto the moving image. Thus oscillating between the virtual in the real and the real in the virtual.
