I’m excited to be collaborating with the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria this month in conjunction with the Hiraki Sawa exhibition.
The Japanese-born, London-based artist is known for video and animation work that explores psychological landscapes, unexpected worlds, and the interweaving of domestic and imaginary spaces. This Friday I will present three video pieces inspired by the playful, dreamlike quality of Sawa’s work (above). These moving light collages were created with footage of sunlight and shadows filmed around my home. This takes place during URBANITE, November 7, 8-11pm.
I’ll also be leading my first animation workshop at the AGGV later in the month. I will discuss how to take your sketchbook to the next level using animation techniques to deepen the observation of your subject (and make wicked animated GIFS!). This is November 20 7-9pm, click the link above to sign up, spaces are limited.
