This animation uses watercolor paintings of child-morphed creatures, poppies and dismembered legs, based on collaged photos from my animation 'Nothing ever happened', to produce a commentary on loss. Set to the song 'Love is a Hunter' by Rae Spoon reminds us that love can be transformative, but sometimes the intensity of this transformation can be threatening.
The surreal imagery reflects a childhood where love is very much defined by one's ability to hide from violence and pain.
