Gabriel Gabriel Garble


In my animation practice, all inputs have come directly from my hand. As earthlings, we share the same space as other earthlings. We have never lived as an isolated species, but we live as if we are. If images have power, then I want to reproduce images that amplify nonhuman presences, and not further perpetuate ideas rooted in human exceptionalism.

In the last 2 years, I’ve been recording the sounds around us – human and nonhuman – and inviting them to move my animations, rather than being puppeted by me like some circus master.

This installation is an adaptation of this approach to fit the context of a degree show exhibition.

Using a combination of 2-D and 3-D techniques, Gabriel’s films invite the viewer to dive into a dreamlike state of contemplation and live alongside the animism within each frame.
