2003, digital video, 1:00 minutes


This short animation suggests an uncanny inversion of the natural order. A dead figure lies face down on the forest floor while a ghost-like, white deer circles in and out of the scene, hovering over the motionless figure. Innocuous video footage of a deer walking in a California forest has been altered through the use of rotoscoping (an animation technique used over film). This footage has been combined digitally with the artist’s own body forming an eerie, open-ended musing on the relationship between the hunter and the hunted and the meaning of death in the otherwise blissful Arcadian landscape..
