Origin of Hair


Artist Talk & Rotoscoping Workshop

Saturday, Apr 16, 2022 at 11:00 am

Location: Amphitheater Gallery

Media Artist Carrie Hawks will give a rotoscoping animation workshop which combines digital and analog filmmaking techniques followed by an artist talk. Hawks will share insights into their creative practice, which includes Origin of Hair, an experimental animation featured in the Marvels of Media exhibition. Recommended for ages 16 and up.

Carrie Hawks confronts self-imposed and external assumptions about identity in order to promote healing, particularly in relation to Blackness, gender, and queer sexuality. They work in animation, drawing, collage, sculpture, and performance, often incorporating humor. Their films have screened at over 40 festivals including Ann Arbor Film Festival and BlackStar Film Festival.
