Based on a poem by Sarah Heady, and with a musical score by Ryan Chase, An Arrow Pointing Down (6 min 45 sec) was originally made as part of a longer, three channel multi-media piece, in which four visual artists worked with four composers. Shown here is the first section of the video/sound collaboration between Ryan Chase and myself. It combines video footage with stop-action animation made using paper cut-outs, objects and drawing.
