Story Time - Created by Cristal Buemi
Stop Motion Animated commission for North York Arts' 10th Anniversary Exhibition. I focused on the idea of anniversaries for this piece. Normally they are a time for celebration but most importantly reflection. I wanted to explore this idea when asked “What does North York Arts mean to you”, and represent it through a storybook. But not just any storybook, one that comes to life through unique materials, textures and colours, one frame at a time. I feel like this eclectic diversity represents the incredible community that NYA has helped grow. A place to feel safe, inspired, and nurtured which is represented through beautiful glowing light. My hopes with this piece are that you too can feel the wonderment, and imagination that comes along with reflecting on the past, but more importantly when looking towards the future.
