Derive (2012)
mixed media.stopmotion.audio

Created during a blitzresidency at Krabbedans, Derive is a reaction to the work 'Mouvement Perpetuel' (2010) by Esther Tielemans.

The dance-esque dynamics of Tielemans' work reminded me very much of the Triadsches Ballett costumes by Oskar Schlemmer, as well as moving components from early avantgarde films by the likes of Fernand Leger, Walter Ruttmann and Hans Richter.

Derive explores the sequential shapes in a moving choreography of stopmotion with a dedicated soundtrack composed of field recordings, aiming to create a new authentic experience in the process.
