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. I love mixing 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.
