The Paper Trail

August 27, 2013

The Paper Trail is a paper sculpture made using pieces from my previous paper animation projects; Evolucity, Unlaced, Frolic, and Pow Pow.
The work is installed from the ceiling, and it is lit with digital projections. The juxtaposition of the digital images, the ascii code and the audio, with the paper is eerie, yet brings to question what our digital trail will resemble without paper.
This video is documentation of the installation.

The Cyclotrope Circus had the pleasure of being shown at the Maison des artistes visuels francophone (MAVF) Pop-up Gallery at the Winnipeg Fringe Festival this summer. WHile we were there we made a little video documenting the installation. You should certainly ‘give it a spin!’

Gimli Film Festival

Gimli Film Festival

Amazing luck!! My film, Evolucity, played at the Gimli Film Festival this year. Gimli puts on a fabulous festival, complete with a projection screen in the water and a beach filled with spectators. A big thanks to the National Screen Institute, and Liz Hover for considering Evolucity for their Short Animation Series.

20130810-121556.jpg This summer I’ve had a slight obsession with making bunting flags. It started because we had an installation at the Winnipeg Folk Festival, called the Hula Tree, and we needed more decorations for the trees…. And then my obsession grew and I made more and more and more flags!

The Cyclotropes were installed in the Festival Campground. The animations were changed everyday.


Hula Tree Installation & Workshops

July 11, 2013

Jacquelyn Hébert & Nathalie Coulson have been installing the Hula Tree at the Winnipeg Folk Festival for the past 8 years, but this year they asked me to join in on their collaboration!

We made over 35 hulas to decorate the hula tree, and ran two hula workshops during the course of the festival. 20130810-154934.jpg




It was a hula-va good time 🙂
