narrative // final stein motion

My first video for the Gertrude Stein’ motion pieces utilizes stop-motion and depicts Stein’s poems being written in unique ways across the pages of a sketchbook. This video is a bit more experimental than my book but it still focusses on taking a small part from a seemingly overwhelming whole in order to more easily come to an understanding.

The second video still focusses on the “piece from the  whole” concept but also demonstrates how mass amounts of information can quickly become overwhelming. it also ties in more formally with my book (in that it uses transparent materials), and  the video taps into the layering concept I used for my book (Stein’s poems contain layers of information that needs to be pulled back individually to get to an understanding).
