Searching Jon (2007) and Searching Damien (2007)The first two in a series of works combining multiple drawings with an animation. In both works 338 small dip pen and ink drawings search the expressions of an individual. The marks catch brief contrasting moments of serenity, anxiety, excitement, confusion, introversion, and both released and repressed tension. The accompanying animation loop presented on an iPod sequences the drawings in multiple combinations and in different rhythms attempting to extend a sense of exploration both of the activity of the artist and that of the named individual.
