This weekend, for the third year in a row, I had the great pleasure of participating in Rooms to Let: CLE, in which a handful of foreclosed houses in Cleveland’s Slavic Village neighborhood were transformed into temporary artspaces. I build a video installation around my animation Emergence #2.

…and here, for your viewing pleasure, is the original animation:
The (more or less) complete installation! I’ll have some video up soon of the zoetropes in motion.
IngenuityFest starts tomorrow at 5pm and runs through Sunday.
And now, a brief preview of Ingenuity 2016’s location: a vacant factory labyrinth on St. Clair blvd. Very picturesque. Very Cleveland. The last photo is the site of my installation.
Cleveland’s IngenuityFest is in less than a week, and so I’m taking a break from the digital animation to work on something more archaic. I’ll be posting updates throughout the week as my project comes together; stay tuned!
New animation, completed today:
I created this with OpenToonz, the open version of the software used by Studio Ghibli (software which, I might add, was released for free but without any instructions whatsoever). Unsurprisingly, this first effort is a bit rough around the edges.
