The Shores of Swan Lake, in the open call portion of the Recycled Rain Project 2014 (hanging in the Olympic Mills Building in Portland, Oregon until June 14th)! It’s based on the Swan Maiden fairytale and Swan Lake. I hand carved 300lb Arches watercolor paper with exact knives, painted the pieces with Noodler’s Ink, jointed the puppets with sculpture wire for stop motion animation, then mounted it all in a shadowbox.
I’m in the process of making a digitally animated version of this as well, but in the meantime see the animation attached the the QR code here!
I ended up using about thirty exact blades on this thing. It’s a miracle I didn’t get blood on any of the paper.
