Artist Statement:


    “(re)cognition” is not a story with a beginning and end. It is an anima­tion 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 effect 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.
