It starts with the rhythmic whirring of the drum, the intoxicating, almost nauseating scent of toner and the warm sensation that is freshly Xeroxed multipurpose paper in hand. Xerographia is a body of work generated over 5 years, comprised of countless hours spent composing animated photomontages with the use of a Xerox machine. Inside public and academic libraries, office buildings, and self-service copy centers are where these films begin to take shape.
Love Me Not (2015)
Ciné-roman animation. Commissioned.
Reconstituted from fragments of Mid-Century commercial and ephemeral media, Saxony is an experimental collage-animation that reimagines the class and gender tropes found within the narratives of psychological melodramas.
Constructed as a flashback, the film follows an anonymous female protagonist as she slips into a state of unconsciousness…
Rhythmic loop animation.
