Animation | 9:39 | 2022

Title Unknown is an animation made by sanding through blocks of layered material while photographing the images revealed along the way. Blocks were 6″x6″ of varying depths, made with acrylic medium and various collected objects, layered on a canvas wrapped board, mounted on wood. Remnants of the blocks after sanding as well as a jar of dust from the sander were displayed alongside a projection of the film.
