Weresheglanspertheere (2014) 5’06”

Weresheglanspertheere is a digital animation that takes as its source material documentary images and sounds found on the Internet. It examines the impact of unreliable juxtapositions of sounds and images on both the intellectual and emotional response of the viewer. The heavily abstracted and recreated found content investigates the position of a witness to the nonfictional events presented.
