Projections, sculptures, natural materials, human bodies—Durham artist Jaclyn Bowie employs them all in her enchanting analog animations, which have trace elements of shadow puppetry and avant-garde cinema. But what happens on the screen (or wall, or wherever they happen to be projected) is only part of the story. Bowie is more interested in people, places, and how they influence each other; her works frequently begin in consideration of a site, not a predetermined aesthetic. More than a tangible product, Bowie’s practice creates spaces where people combine and collaborate... the artwork is only complete when it’s full of people to elaborate it with thoughts, stories, and interactions.
