shadow play videos

I have been working on the Shadow Play videos since 2001.
In making them, I manipulate shadow puppets (made out of paper and wire) while they are on an overhead projector. The resulting vignettes are synched with sound effects and music to foster a sense of rhythm and motion.

Dead Birds

These drawings are made from paint chips (what you get from the hardware store to figure out what color you want to paint your room). They are cut and puzzled together, inlaid into the larger background paint chip. Each is either 4" by 4" or 4" by 6".
