ONE SHOWING ONLY!!! Don't miss this MFA student presentation.

Tomlinson combines the digital and the tactile in colorful, expressive, painterly animation and live performance. In these three pieces, she addresses issues of environmental change. "Medusa, The Immortal Jellyfish" is a live visual theater performance that blends animation, ceramic sculpture, underwater plastic-bottle puppets, live video feeds, and multiple projections to create an immersive world from the perspective of a swarm of jellyfish. The process and the product are created live on stage simultaneously. "Lost House Lost Island" is made of animated clay paintings that tell the story of the last house on a sinking island in the Chesapeake Bay. "Madaline’s Stilts" is an overly optimistic fairy tale of human adaptation in the face of rising sea levels.
