Place of Longing, mixed media stop-motion animation, duration 10:09 minute loop

 

Place of Longing is a contemplative video-painting that expresses yearning for a time of lost innocence, while
simultaneously acknowledging that it is an ideal that can only exist in the imagination. This inexplicable mixture
of longing and acceptance is best described by the Portuguese term 'saudade'.

 

Place of longing received was included in the 2015 Gertrude Street Projection Festival in Melbourne  and received and honorable mention from Walker Abercrombie judges. The work was re-appropriated for and White Night Melbourne 2016 with a live score composed by Tim Downey and performed by Brianna Hudson and Tim Downey for the duration of the event.
