After Effects Project

I’ve always had a penchant for victorian aesthetics…and feminism. So for this project, I decided to make an animation to accompany a song called “Sister O Sisters” by Le Tigre with Yoko Ono. I decided to put this young victorian woman in various situations where she “sings” along with the song. While the image originally depicted the young girl at a beach shouting, I imagined her more shouting in protest. Some of the scenarios I had in mind included amongst lower east side immigrant women at the fin de siecle,... Read The Rest →

It is hard for me to argue for free and fair use for all when most artists so rarely are compensated for their work and striving for economic stability and success is something most can identify with in capitalist societies. However, I strongly believe in free access... Read The Rest →

Response to The Machine Stops

How depressing a world without nature, without human touch and interaction. I can barely fathom such a world. A world devoid of warm, dense and pugent earth, of soft skin and rough hands. Maybe we are already living in a world not entirely unlike the one Forster portrays. This dystopian fantasy addresses classical human dynamics in an absurdly [post]modern world.
