slow gestures (in)stills (18 grid)
Slow gesture (in)stills is a print series that references beaded animation made to honour the life of a plant depicted. These particular prints honors the Indian potato. The cycle of slowing down the already slow gesture of beadwork, speeding through stop motion animation, then sectioning moments within that gesture, proposes a way to contemplate the action of honouring. To slow down is to take time and think through the making of a single object, a single movement, a single image, a time to respect the earth and other than human beings around us. These gestures instill a deep respect for the process of making, from the tactility of beading to capturing the action on video, and the visual marker of printing.
