Equator (2010)

Stream | Artist Residency

The culmination of a two-year residency in our Film/Video Studio, Amy Yoes’s Equator illustrates the interdisciplinary artist’s interest in architectural space and its details. 

A simple vocabulary of geometric shapes is given life through richly layered stop-motion animation that continually builds and collapses upon itself. An equally dense and complex soundtrack, made from recording found and thrifted everyday objects, gives voice to the unfolding landscape. (2:20 mins., video)
