Over the Falls, 2022
Stop motion animation
7 seconds



My animations come out of a series of collages – the Calamity series in which one or two little girls are on the verge of various perils but seem totally unaware of what is coming their way. From there, these collages have developed into the stop motion animations. For all the animations, Little Betty Jane – the unflappable paper doll ‘star’ always suffers in the end. In many ways my own alter ego, I just keep killing her over and over again. Just as Little Betty Jane is unaware of what perils lie around the corner – so are we all.
