Leaves of Grass

Leaves of Grass (2015)

Leaves of Grass is a short animation with inspiration from Walt Whitman's poem and was completed as a final assignment for Practicum Fall 2015 class at Pratt Institute.  I used techniques I was already familiar with, such as hand painting, and also introduced new skills, such as using green screen to capture movement of my own body.  As the piece progresses I begin to transcend my physical body and become a part of the environment, my atoms flowing freely between myself and the rest of the world.

Leaves of Grass was part of the group show Interlaced (2016) at Pratt Institute Digital Arts Gallery.
