The Rabbit Always Dies
Book and short film, estimated release summer 2024
An experimental documentary that reveals the complex history of pregnancy tests from the 1930s-60s which relied on the use of live frogs and rabbits.
This work lives two parallel lives, as an 80-page risograph printed artist book and a short film that incorporates risograph animation and historical images.
The frames of the animation are spread across the variable edition. The animation is done at 12 frames a second. Each book contains 1/4th of the frames, so though every book contains images from every second of animation, they do not contain all the same frames. As each page could be one of four options, each book in the edition is likely to have a slightly different recombination of images.
