dECEMBER 2018: South Dakota Art Museum Faculty Scholar

Being selected as the SD Art Museum Faculty Scholar for Autumn 2018 yielded some wonderful explorations and interactions with fine friendly folks like Lynn Verschoor and Jodi Lundgren of the South Dakota Art Museum. Thanks for the opportunities. Hope to keep discussions about an animation exhibit going for 2020! Below are some free form tests using Lynn Verschoor’s felted wool forms that helped me think about shape, movement, and also how hard it is to animate things sometimes!
