butoh

This is a character which I created in clay for a project with my husband and friends Andreu, Olga and Raquel. We wanted to make a stop motion short film which is currently in a stand-by status, since we all had personal projects pending. This character in particular was dismissed because it was not exactly what we were looking for.  It was inspired in a butoh dancer, a form of dance which Olga introduced to the group.

It was left aside and forgotten until one day my husband took a picture of the sculpture, digitally added a pair of eyes to the puppet as a sketch and I saw new possibilites. Finally I decided to take a photograph of his eyes and we edited them, making a collage. This is the final result in two versions plus the original head.
