PIGEON WITHIN was made over a period of two years. The artwork combines Xeroxed photographs with drawn and animated figures: this in order to juxtapose ideas of present reality with remembered, envisioned or emotional truths. This short animated film depicts a woman's journey home: from dark tunnels of doubt, through an encounter with her guardian angel (or was it?) to the fun of slapping Park Avenue canopies in the wee hours.
