@00:01I have tried all day to get the film to work -- and it's just not working for me! I have flash 9.0 blahblahblah installed and I'm viewing through firefox. Should I be using another browser? :) I really want to see this!

'Grotesqueness may appear in anything which is found to be in sufficient grave conflict with accepted standards to arouse emotion'. -- (Clayborough, Arthur. The Grotesque in English Literature)

'The basis of mankind's existence rests on his creating stability out of an otherwise chaotic world.'- (The Fear of Change in the 19th-Century Grotesque)

The basis of my work is to disrupt that stability, bringing people out of their comfort zone and planting them rudely back in the face of chaos and uncertainty, and my latest piece of work is centered on theories of abjection and the uncanny. My approach to making is heavily influenced by works such as: 'Street of Crocodiles' by The Brothers Quay, 'Love and Redemption' by Joel-Peter Witkin, and 'Body Fluids' by Andres Serrano.

My installation strives to evoke ambivalent emotions in the viewer by juxtaposing familiar elements with conflicting surroundings. Traditionally the teddy bear has always been associated with childhood, providing comfort and a sense of security through its unthreatening and cuddly, furry surface. In my work the teddy bears' attempt at life is disrupted; the stop motion animation makes their movements jerky and disjointed. Through their uncanny movements, they act out strange and nightmarish scenarios detaching them from their typical associations. The result is an unsettling, yet strangely captivating experience.

Daily Deviation

Given 2008-03-11
Intellectual Uncertainty by ~darknessgazer Personnaly, I find it hard to make smooth Stop motion animation. This movie is a great exemple of fluid stop motion! There are also some nice effects! ( Featured by feawen )

Love it.

I wonder if pieces like this will one day overtake the traditional associations of Teddy Bears. I think it's already happening with clowns. Everyone knows that clowns are scary.

I can never look at teddy bears in the same way again.

I don't get scared at these but I find this film really interesting.

And this is a pretty unique concept.
