Trusts and Estates
Trusts and Estates is a hand-drawn animated satire adapted from a conversation overheard in a Santa Monica restaurant in 2011. Four lawyers engage in a bantering lunch conversation that quickly devolves into a grotesque and brutal comedy of cruelty and hypocrisy. What starts off as an innocent yet brutish conversation about meal choices and manliness turns into a horrifying yet hilarious display of male competitiveness.

‘Limitations’, is a 15 ft film loop of animated scratch, shot not frame-by-frame but in increments, one millimeter at a time. Using only this 15-foot loop, Jeanette created a longer piece, subject to certain rules; the two key rules being that the loop can only be presented in rectangular format; and that the loops, when in motion, cannot touch.

14.7 psi’, which is the number of pounds per square inch that pressure increases per 33 feet of diving, is an animation of 100 copies of a single photograph. Jeanette created a hundred layers from a photograph of stars and animated them against each other whilst animating the hues in each layer. Inspired by an underwater experience and with a music track by Duane Pitre, this aims to produce a physical reaction in the spectator.

LASER NON LASER
LASER NON LASER, is an illusory and encapsulating experience in which animated light is projected through fog simulating laser beams in the direction of a viewer to retro-space electronic music. The piece is to be seen from a specific vantage point in the space in which it occupies. At this spot the viewers are confronted by choreographed green light beams that encapsulate the entire body and close in on the head, giving the spectator the illusion that the light beams, as seemingly solid objects, will collide with the body.

OED:RES IPSA(14 minute video plus wall installation)
This installation is an investigation of the hidden narrative within a given subject.
'OED: RES IPSA’, was made by photographing and sequencing as a film each page of the Oxford English Dictionary. In the installation the animation is projected on to one wall of a room to the sound of a Teletype. All the physical pages of the dictionary arepinned to the remaining walls. ‘OED” was inspired by the story of Dr William Chester Minor, an Civil War era insane asylum inmate who contributed a large proportion of the entries to the dictionary and originated the idea of the “catchphrase” (the words at the top of the page, e.g. antelope-aardvark). Because his letters, sent from the asylum, were signed Dr Chester Minor, the editors assumed him to be an employee of the asylum.
