Essay by Megan MacLaurin

‘H.O.M.E. (Hoarding Old Memory Eggs)’ is a computer-generated (CG) experimental animation that utilizes photogrammetry, 3D modeling, motion capture, fabricated textures, simulations, an arcing narrative, and an experimental soundtrack. This world is the location of memories attached to sentimental objects. This piece is a brief insight into the main character, SAL’s (Self Afflicted Loathing) world.


Artist Bio:


I’m Marcella, a Toronto-Based bilingual new media artist who hails from the Eastern Townships of Quebec. My new media digital art practice is motivated by an ecstatic feeling of creating experimental animations that challenge traditional aesthetics in animation, illustration and design. I start projects with an interest in learning an emerging or traditional medium. The themes I explore surround deciphering unclear emotions such as belonging, grief, self-depreciation and isolation. My need to materialize an emotion through visual aesthetics helps me acknowledge and rationalize emotions that cause mental commotions. This commotion is caused by my Non-Verbal Learning disability (NLD) which renders social interactions and feelings abstract and hard to understand. For myself, experimental animation is an unconventionally fun way to decipher my emotions
