"The Shape of the Land" is an animated illustrated poetic text that uses words and image as well as voice to convey a personal /political/environmental philosophy. It is a longer form work that relates to a series of short animations I have been recently posting on Instagram. The 2d animation is drawn frame by frame on a digital screen but is done in the spirit of the direct drawing on film technique that was used by many animation pioneers. It is meant to be a visual work that functions as a painting in motion.
