I am thrilled to announce that I have been accepted into my first Artist Residency through the Hungarian Multicultural Center in Budapest!
During this HMC Artist in Residence, I will expand upon an animation video project called Communified. which is currently exhibiting at the Electronic 4Culture Gallery in Seattle, Washington. 4Culture describes the text animation as “a poetic consolidation of personal texts drawn from various participants’ journal entries.”
As I evolve Communified, I plan to develop the work into an animation series of installation videos. The participants in this segment will vary in demographics amongst the Hungarian community with whom I will personally connect during my residency.
Communified is a text animation compiled of excerpts from personal journal entries, letters, emails and text messages submitted by various individuals from around the world. I use letters and words, experimenting in form and rhythm, to alter voice and emotion. Communified celebrates our inner voices in the many tones and styles that unify us as human beings.
The funds raised through KICKSTARTER will be used to help pay for my residency fees. I have applied to grants to cover further costs. I continue to work diligently in paving my career as an artist and participate in a strong virtual and international community of creative minds.
For several years, I have had a personal goal to participate in an international Artist Residency and your financial support will help me achieve this goal. Rest assured, your support will be gifted with unique rewards and positive energy.
Thank you so much.
