Process/Description:
In the project Slick, I examine the possible effects of the BP oil spill on the Gulf Coast. In the summer of 2010, I traveled to Louisiana where I observed the situation firsthand. I shot part of a film short using stop motion animation on several state park beaches and bayous near the damaged areas. The film comes with a limited edition book that is printed on rubber gaskets used in oil pipes. The book is multi-sensory, besides being visually engaging, it is also tactile and has a noticeable scent. Partial proceeds go to environmental coastal groups.
