Artist Statement

The Fawn (2017)
Statement: The Fawn is a collaborative, intergenerational storytelling project for the 21st century. This social media born, expanded cinema work unites art and life through the reinvention and the magical realism of a child’s imagination, who is constantly stuck at her parent’s work, and she moves to another level with Snapchat. The Fawn is a no budget work that utilizes free mobile applications to explore character and contemporary issues in ecology through the whimsical perspective of childhood. The Fawn gets separated from her parents while searching for clean water. She encounters deforestation which drives her further into the forest where she meets all manner of creatures before discovering the heart of the forest where there is clean water. The film uses common technology and free mobile applications to weave a fantastical hero’s journey as she traverses modern ecological crises.
"The most important part about tomorrow is not the technology or the automation, but that man is going to come into entirely new relationships with his fellow men. He will retain much more in his everyday life of what we term the naïveté and idealism of the child. I think the way to see what tomorrow is going to look like is just to look at our children." --Buckminster Fuller
