Animation & Puppetry
Animation and puppetry are art forms that I love to incorporate into my work. I greatly appreciate those who've mastered these techniques and the beautiful work they produce.
Here is my music video "Mask" using very new and old technologies. It’s fun to mix things up!
In 1996 I created an animated film on 16mm. The VHS and digitized versions have been lost but I recovered some paper frames of the dolls. They were stashed carefully away in a small box. Here's a quick test I did with them using a Stop Motion app.
Behind my 3-D paper doll character is a photo of Shigeru Ban, a famous Japanese architect who is known for his innovative work with paper. Some call him an ecological or conscious architect. He hates wasting things.
