The Price of Oil

This 20-min experimental animation video was produced for a music piece performed by contemporary music ensemble Wooden Cities, titled The Price of Oil. The video was made through various stop motion techniques and programming in video editing software. As an archival art practice, this experimentation involved curating and reworking more than 8 thousand archival images/stills, all animated in response to the music piece. Images have been taken from old newspapers, and magazines, as well as historical video footage and some movies’ stills.
