Final animation exhibition

In preparation for my exhibition in March I went scouting for the perfect space and decided on The Black Box at  49 McCaul gallery space. I plan to use both rooms to screen my final animation and the process of rotoscoping. This animation technique is using live footage as a base for animation frames and as part my embodied research methodology I am conducting primary research through my practices. I filmed Bachata footage with my dance partner Pavlo Farmakidis which will be subsequently interpreted through the hand-drawn process of rotoscoping. It is very interesting for me to see how animation, dance and martial arts inform each other as I’m exploring these practices as forms of embodied knowledge in their techniques of learning, execution and self- expression. Here are some stills from the video editing process and now I’m off to hand-draw/paint some 2,100 frames.
