ECONOMY OF MEANS / ACT 1 & 2
“Economy of Means” (act 1) considers drawing as a form of moving image using storyboard and graphic novel structures to explore idea of revolution through an expanded symbolism of bread. Intricately weaving historic references of various rebellions and grotesque bread creatures, the storyline follows from injustice to uprising, unity to fragmentation and defeat.
“Economy of Means” (act 2) explores representation and abstraction through analogy of bread making. Merging together economic diagrams, mathematical signs, and motion studies, the drawing moves from high to low resolution images, from pixels to bread crumbs. It mixes together industrialized efficiency of bread production with an occasional rogue bacteria.
