Synopsis

This internationally exhibited musical animation uses watercolor paintings of child-morphed creatures, poppies and dismembered legs, based on collaged photos from MacCormack’s animation Nothing ever Happened (2009, 9min) to produce a commentary on loss. Set to the song ‘Love is a Hunter’ by Rae Spoon, this unsettling animation “reminds us that love can be transformative, but sometimes the intensity of this transformation can be threatening.”[1] The surreal imagery reflects a childhood where love was “very much defined by one’s ability to hide from violence and pain.”
