A Love poem to Unnecessary objects is a Wallpaper like meditation on vibrant matter, a direct sensual response to the call of objects and is pulled directly from the artist/hoarder’s obsessive accumulation of material items. The project uses digital collage techniques to combine stop-motion animation, compositing and found footage into rhythmic latex and pixel hybrids, which explore the possibilities of meaning within a consumer based value system.
The project was created as a part of a week long residency at Vidéograph, one of Montreal's first artist-run centres dedicated to video.
