fluid figures


This project took place in the heart of downtown Denver, which is a location that is something of a “home” to me. The pandemic pushed my creative work in new directions, and these interrelated pieces stem from what I was somehow “willed” me to do. In these works, I experimented with animating certain aspects of my paintings and drawings with the opportunity to put these moving pieces out into the public to activate the city. These are stop motion animation and video footage collage pieces which were on view through Night Lights Denver, projected on the historic clocktower during the month of August 2022 as well as on an LED screen next to it through Denver Digerati. The Denver Theatre District (DTD) enlivens a 16-block area of downtown Denver through interactive, immersive and experimental art and culture events and experiences, which this work was a part of. This model is the first of its kind, setting an example for cities nationwide in how to leverage private revenue streams to fund public art and activity. Run time: 2 minutes The work additionally transformed into an installation piece at K Contemporary Art just down the street from the clocktower and included cast plastic branches suspended above the animation. These works speak to my interest in the public versus private narrative.
