Crowd Surfing

The mural Crowd Surfing references an animation work I made. In making animation I am always thinking about how movements are made. I began to trace the paper puppets to study the movements of the puppets and the drawings resemble the drawing you see in this mural. When people are crowd surfing they pop up from the crowd and are carried by the crowd and fall back into the crowd. Their movement in the crowd and being carried by the crowd is a metaphor for aspects of our life as social beings.
