“Health Goth.” “Athleisure.” “Post-Punk-Synthpop-Darkwave.”
While ruminating on these things my buddy Grant Worth and I made this video together during 2015. After a few hiccups… it came together. We filmed this video at the awesome Park Church Co-op in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Grant and I have been experimenting with old school hand drawn animation lately. You can see a few examples in the video.

GHOST LINES

December 12-14, 2013
Thursday-Saturday at 8:00PM
Danspace Project:
131 East 10th Street (at Second Avenue)
New York, NY 10003

Using an archival impulse to channel a lost movement history, Cori Olinghouse’s latest work contains echoes ranging from silent film comedians to Dada, Surrealism, and Oskar Schlemmer, the Bauhaus’ choreographer of unusual visual ballets. A cast of accomplished dancers: Michelle Dorrance, Elizabeth Keen, Mina Nishimura, and Eva Schmidt scramble through multiple personalities and pseudo stories.

As part of the evening, Olinghouse and film artist, Shona Masarin merge creative processes with a 16mm black & white film that uses traditional animation techniques, hand processing, chemical experiments, collage, painting, and drawing. In the film, Olinghouse acts as a medium, conjuring imagery from our collective unconscious, allowing a series of imagined spaces, forms, characters, and personalities to drift through her body, take form, and dissolve again. Drawn to the mechanics of the medium as it relates to perception, kinetics, and optical illusion, they look for rhythms and startling chance compositions that confuse, seduce, and assault the senses.

Black, horned, and slender, with membranous wings…

Mythical Actual

Posted in collaboration, costume, photography by andytoad on June 3, 2012

Chimeras, a photography project that I helped my friend Felipe Vasquez with, is featured in Dossier Journal :  http://dossierjournal.com/look/photography/chimeras/

Felipe shot these photographs in Chile earlier this year. He and I worked together to realize the look of the characters which are based on ritual costume and supernatural figures of the world.
