It has a lot to show, some things to tell, and a request (optional!).
Running time: a very animated 3.5 mins.
‘The Variations’ is a suite of 4 standalone films:
‘Advertisements for myself’
‘Glad Hand/Sad Hand’
They incorporate stop-motion, time lapse, live action, mixed media animation, and analogue and digital media.
Taking a playfully structuralist approach (think: Hollis Frampton at his most benign), each video reworks recurrent motifs, imagery, and narrative tropes, parlaying them into an extended, ever-evolving open ended cine-anagram.
(in the third episode there are actual anagrams, too)
