An experimental stop animation short using cheap mass produced materials and waste to create a symbolic narrative about the values of contemporary consumer culture.
Destroying a Sculpture: The Process
The final sculpture was constructed using a classical Greek bust combined with industrial products and post consumer waste to create forms that resemble organic growths and parasites. The video then documents the destruction of the finished sculpture using stop motion techniques. Played in reverse narrative order we see the figure of classical beauty transform into a modern type of mythological living monster.
The piece is part of a larger series of paintings and mixed media works by Jake Scharbach that focuses on creating a dialogue between two opposing but codependent states, Beauty and Horror, breaking down the separation between the ideal world, our notion of beauty and mythology, and the industrial post consumer realities of modern day culture.
This short is a collaboration of techniques combining fine art, creative fabrication, photography, sound design, visual effects and hyperlapse.
