Love Story: the Cut ( 2 min 21s)
Video: stop-motion animated ceramics
I created this video by layering footages from animating high-fired ceramic objects that I sculpted with footages of the shadows of my hand holding various objects.
In this piece, I hope to express a section of the psyche infected by desire and discord.
This is from a project I started during my Spring 2013 semester at Albion College. The project was funded by FURSCA.
I created this video by animating high-fired ceramic objects I made. Ceramics enables me to create three-dimensional sculptural work such as the work I created in my previous FURSCA projects. I was interested in expanding the dimensionality in the body of work I create.
Video, as a medium, enables me to add the fourth dimension, i.e. time, into my sculptural voices.
Stop-motion animation technique allows me to digitalize my sculpted imagery to manipulate and sew them together into a sequence of moving images that resembles the pattern of the human consciousness through editing and cutting. It gives me the opportunity to further narrate the complex psychological conditions.
In this piece, I hope to express a section of the female psyche infected by desire and discord.
