To me, Aurora is the most exquisite phenomenon found in our natural world. Not only is Aurora visually beautiful, but its history and folklore is stunning as well. The folklore behind Aurora spans centuries and cultures. There are many different tales that are said to be related to Aurora, whether its loved ones past, the dead dancing in the sky, children playing, or an omen of war and bad fortune. In my piece I wanted to explore the color, movement, and folklore that surrounds Aurora. In this multimedia piece, I used a combination of photo-manipulated stop motion, found video, and found sound to create a beautiful yet foreboding and ominous visual experience. I want the viewer to be entranced and overwhelmed by what they are experiencing.
