Banff Centre Article

The Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity posted an article about the recent two month residency that I was awarded called the Emerging Atlantic Artist in Residence. Check out the article written by Devon Murphy here:

I am almost done re-working parts of the animation that I had made while there. I carved out some visual rules for this work, a limited colour scheme, fills and strokes, working within frames and basic camera movements. I'm wondering about this specific visual language that I normally see associated with infographics and explainer videos.

The work is a narrative to thread together characters from an ecosystem specific to that region. I focused on Physalla Johnsoni, the endangered snail that lives only at the thermal springs on Sulphur Mountain in Banff.

 This is one drawing from a series where I traced the posture of the researcher of the snail as he worked counting each of the snails individually. These drawings feature in the animation I made,  This Place , 2016
