Building Blocks (Animation Series), 2007-2014
Inspired by the stories we were lulled to sleep by as children, this series of animations relies wholly on the building blocks of digital video (pixels) and pure color to communicate with the viewer.
I am at heart a storyteller, compelled by curiosity and the need to experiment. This series has kept me engaged because so much is possible within its constraints. Rather than tell one story, I seek to initiate a conceptual narrative that provides the opportunity for inferential meanings, construed understandings, and unexpected discoveries.
