SWOON: deep dive

I first began noticing SWOON‘s artwork on the streets in Brooklyn in 1998? 99 – beautiful intricate art pasted to buildings, on walls and in doorways. Her installations have also long been an inspiration, and now I’m loving seeing her new experiments with animation.

The short stop motion pieces are featured mostly on her instagram page… facebook too I think.

An excerpt from an article in Juxtapoz magazine:

“[stop motion] opens up so much potential for the creation of meaning and narrative. And because our thoughts and dreams unfold over time, I really get the sense that time-based mediums speak to the subconscious in unique ways, which I’m enjoying playing with. It’s so much fun to take a deep dive and learn something solo, from scratch.”

So good to see new experiments and here’s to all those pushing themselves (and their work) onward.
