Artist Animator & Filmmaker Kari Nygard makes work with film loops, direct animation and stills. She concentrates on the characteristics of analogue film formats and how they can express the ephemeral nature of personal memory; the idea of transitory moments and impermanence.
Her research interests are in contemporary cinematic forms through the transformation of analogue, archive film & photography.
