This composition was created from original hand-painted frames from the short film Matter Out of Place. The piece reframes themes raised in the film; looking at both a single moment in time, and the repetitive motion spread out like days crossed-off in a calendar. Here, routine feels almost like a trap. 

First Place winner of the juried show Motion Pictured at the East Alcove Gallery, International House- Philadelphia.
