I will be creating a series of animated projections based on the theme of migratory birds for the Migrations theatre project: A Wing A Prey A Song. For more information visit www.awingapreyasong.org
Having a lifelong fascination for the natural world, I feel inspired that this project will enable me to gain a deeper understanding of birds; to explore the movement of bird flight, the textures and patterns of their markings, their gestures and social interaction.
I find the symbolism of bird migration very interesting. Migration can represent the yearning we feel for a bigger world, for change and for adventure.
The animation works in the play as punctuation; a place for rest and reflection between each scene. Displaying the animation in this way lifts it beyond the TV screen or gallery wall.
