"All I Remember"
Stop motion loop video
"All I Remember" is a loop video made in memory of my grandfather from my mother's side who passed away. Although I was born in Korea, since our family immigrated to Canada when I was young it was difficult to get to know my grandfather personally. All I remember of him is his hobby of raking leaves outside. He also had a mild case of Alzheimer's disease, and so because of this and my regret of not knowing him better, I found it appropriate to create a loop video to depict repetition in his actions as well as his time extended here on Earth.
"Work in Progress"
(Claude Monet painting waterlilies)
Stop motion film
When I found a black and white video of Claude Monet in the process of en plein air (in the open air) painting waterlilies, I felt a need to add colour because it is a crucial element in his works. Instead of adding colour to the canvas however, I decided to animate him colouring his surroundings instead to suggest his significant influence as an impressionist painter - literally leaving a colourful mark on the world.
