Artist Statement:


“(re)cognition” is not a story with a beginning and end. It is an anima­ tion about the moment when something is realized, the moment of understanding, the moment of comprehension. It is the moment
when something that appears random is suddenly deliberate. Cause and e ect provides the stimulus for change; as one shape interacts with another, a transformation begins to occur that is perhaps more recognizable, perhaps more ambiguous. As these shapes evaporate and coalesce throughout the animation, they begin to provoke awareness – small moments when everything seen makes sense for a short time before dissolving into chaos again. It is an experience of moments, a dance of sorts.
