Jodie Mack is an experimental animator. She uses her work to question the role of decoration in daily life and attempts to unleash the kinetic energy of objects.
I am unsure how I feel about her work yet. I love the use of colors and patterns used in her films though I don’t quite enjoy the film themselves. I believe my favorite work was the The Saddest Song in the World (2010) and All Eyes on the Silver Screen (2010).
I enjoyed this film because the animation fit the music (for the most part) that was playing in the background. The animation worked as a visual narration of the song. The bright colors, patterns, and song combine in a way that draws the audience into the animation and allows the viewer to generally be interested to the very end.
I enjoyed this piece because it showed the evolution of women’s eye makeup and how it deteriorated the natural woman’s image. This piece speaks to how society expects women to look and how women are expected to maintain a certain image. On the right side of the screen displays the evolution of the “perfect woman” while the left side shows the effects of society’s pressure on a woman’s emotional being.
