Labor of Love
My Champlain College Creative Media capstone project, Labor of Love, is an experiment in three parts: drawn-on-film animation, film tinted stop motion, and photograph altered using darkroom processes.
It asks why an artist would elect to use old, time-consuming, expensive, and challenging methods for their work rather than utilizing modern technology. It both explores the downsides and finds a simple answer in the advantages: fun.
