Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

by Chang, Jeff, M.F.A., California State University, Long Beach, 2012, 12; 1522212
Abstract (Summary)

My project exhibition THRESHOLDS is comprised of three time-based illustrations in the form of digital projections.

In my work, I take on the journalistic nature of interviewing people on contemporary social issues. I found myself drawn to the stories of my peers, specifically those that dealt with the subject of immigration. The exhibition attempts to present their specific perspectives and insights through a combination of analog and digital animation.

Incorporating more analog forms of animation gave greater visual weight and power to the narratives. A variety of visual styles were employed to embody the complex and uncertain nature of my storytellers. I believe interpreting these stories visually adds another layer of informing and understanding this world we live in.
