The human body represents the place that connects earthly life with the spinning universe. Using stop motion to transform a banana, egg, umbilical cord and a baby doll into one another in a cycle of change. I use everyday objects to animate the moment that death turns into life and back again. The video also questions the model of sexual difference that reduces men and women to separately gendered bodies instead of thinking of all bodies as sites of transformation, both material and spiritual.
