I really wanted to use this residency to try different things and expand my practice, and given enough time and relief from financial concerns for this period (thank you DLGSC), I’ve had an opportunity to have a go at something I’ve always wanted to try – stop motion animation. I used an app on my phone and found objects to create a tiny narrative, matching the situation to music I had recorded just previously. I usually hand draw animation, but this is very time consuming and this work is ‘at speed’, limiting my available time to create. This technique may make the work easier to achieve. My very dear friend furchick followed me on my twitch channel tonight, and reminded me of all of the excellent work she does with stop motion, so I am grateful to her reminder.
