"NU-LIFE" at Gallery Korea Group Show, "Unsettled"

tomorrow on thursday, nov 16, gallery korea (of the korean cultural center of NY) will have its opening reception for the group show, "unsettled"

"Unsettled reveals multilateral aspects of unstable and precarious states in the artists’ lives. The works in the exhibition examine the process of introspection of the unstable state in various ways, reflecting on insecure social systems and expressing these changeable, even volatile situations in their own ways. Together, the artists are allowing the audience to get a glimpse of how the seemingly negative concept of ‘unsettlement’ can be elevated and beautified through art."

NU-LIFE has been invited to this group show, and i will be there to represent it and to admire the other work...! if you are near the area, feel free to join me in seeing the work of other artists who are working with themes of immigration, uproot, identity politics, and the act of settling or unsettling. : )

"lupine" update

just wanted to make this post to prove that…i haven’t forgotten about lupine! it’s been a busy handful of months, and the task of investigating grad schools has consumed a lot of my time. i am looking forward to finishing this film though…perhaps by the end of next summer. : )

in the meantime, enjoy the trailer!

the waxing and waning of a woman's disease,
and her transformative journey towards the top of a mountain. 

BIAF 2015 + start of a ~new film~

been a busy year! i got to travel to Bucheon, South Korea to see NU-LIFE in competition and that was a blast. beyond seeing family, i got to make some lovely new friends. animators are always such chill folks. 

anyways, i’ve been settling back into the groove of work at the museum and–and!! work on a new film! tentatively titled, “lupine”, i got to spend some time with it this weekend and create some preliminary designs + animations…

thought i would share some pics of my awesome students at the Eagle Hill High School working away on their charcoal animations. they’re coming along really beautifully! :’)

also, the trailer for NU-LIFE is up! 

currently busy submitting it to festivals like a madman, and i’m keeping my fingers crossed that it will get to travel a bit and see the world. wish me luck~

and oh, TORO has still been running around at festivals and screenings! recently it played at the Portsmouth Short Film Night  and at ASIFA East in NY. it’s scheduled soon for another date in good ole’ NYC at the DUM-D Student Animation Festival in South Bronx. will post more info as it’s made available, but i’m pretty sure i’ll be present for the screening and the following Q&A.
