Megillat Breakdown is an experimental sound and image collage that uses the Book of Esther as a structural matrix. It is the inaugural piece by the collaborative duo Leslie Baum and Frederick Wells. Baum is a Chicago-based painter who has exhibited nationally and internationally. Her work is in the permanent collections of the Art Institute of Chicago and the Elmhurst Art Museum. Wells is a programmer and composer. He performs and creates music with the Afro-soul band I KONG KULT. Baum and Wells are currently at work on the second animated short in this planned ongoing series.
