our visual culture
What is the South African visual culture? From my personal experience, I believe it is the the act of passing on and the exchanging of knowledge, gifts, and shared experiences. It is the accumulation of all these things and more that allows us to continuously evolve into the beings that we are.
Just like how a collage is formed by piecing together all the different parts of miscellaneous materials to create something unique and beautiful, so too do I believe is the process of culture created the in the same way.
The digital stop-animation collage showcases the passing on of each of the character’s knowledge and gifts onto the next generation. This is personified and shown through a coloured ball and each character can be seen infusing their own gifts into it, and thus continuing the cycle. I created these characters to represent all the inspirational women in my life whom I have gained pieces of wisdom, strength, and constitution from.
thank you for viewing.
