"To Hell and Back" 2010, color, sound, SD video, 13 mins. In pioneer film animator Max Fleisher’s Out of the Inkwell series (c.1920), an animated cartoon character jumps out of a jar of ink and into a live action film set to cause havoc on the cartoonist’s drawing board and surroundings. Hell and Back reverses this process as live characters interact directly with animated Barbie dolls in an animated environment. The story line fuses multiple themes including sex, humor, and violence.
