24 (In The Name)

  1. This piece was inspired by a home video of a woman being baptized in a horse trough. In the Evangelical Christian church, the baptism signifies a most important moment in one’s life – the end of the “old” life and beginning of a “new” life as a Christian. I was interested in this moment which, like other important of our life, is over so quickly and yet is something that we go over and over in our minds. With this in mind, i wanted to meticulously, repetitively, almost obsessively draw out 24 frames from this important moment.
