SECRET CITADEL

multimedia installation, 2013



Secret Citadel explores the trials and tribulations of male friendship through a four part sculptural/video installation and an experimental stop-motion animated narrative. Guided by a variety of subtle gestures and intense interactions an anthropomorphic bison and cougar create a bond that spans all stages of maturity. Playful creativity brings them together while violent awkwardness tears them apart. Eventually the extremes of their relationship create a semi-automated existence as their various animated and live-action forms venture through a self-referential world
