Projectinfo

'Shampaigne' (working title) is an upcoming animation work with the general subject matter being ‘firearms’. Drawing inspiration from the culture of America’s super-gun-owners who own an average of 17+ firearm, as well as major gun-related occurances in recent history, the video will intertwine classic tropes of animation with the reality-bending possibilities of computer generated images. Digitally created drawings and computer generated models/simulations will be composited onto real video footage filmed on walks throughout the city.

Documentation

I am so thankful for the opportunity to stay in MQ for the days in January. I have been working furiously on a new video piece that is due to be shown in Berlin in less than 2 months, but until then I wont have any images to share of the work I commenced at the residency. But, as I was color correcting video footage today, I did find this image of MuseumsQuartier, and thought I would share it with you
