In 1+1+=1, I have taken these drawings and reinterpreted them in embroideries (one of the several traditional “women’s work” skills handed down to me by my Mother) and digital prints.
I have also animated three of the drawings using very simple techniques including the construction of handmade flip-books and praxinoscopes.
Watch videos of the praxinoscopes here.
1+1=1 was a solo exhibition at James Dorahy Project Space, Sydney.

The praxinoscope is a 19th century animation device, similar to the better known zoetrope.
I made 3 praxinoscopes to animate drawings my father did for me when I was a child.
They were part of my solo show 1+1=1.
