Jodie Mack is an experimental animator. Her handmade films consist of animated collages made from recycled materials like photo negatives, magazines, and fabrics.
I tend to associate animation with narrative, so I couldn’t help but be mystified by Jodie Mack’s work. She fills the frame with bright colors and patterns that quickly transform. Though fun to watch, the constant motion and flashy patterns were slightly overwhelming at times.
The combination of clippings with noise gives every video a unique, spunky vibe. I’m inspired by her choice of materials. Jodie Mack explores animation outside of a traditionally narrative format, bringing life and energy to conventional objects.
