Kat the Baker by Hannah Raye White Milwaukee (Wisconsin Premiere) Running Time: 5 minutes Screening Time: TBA Comedy
Sugar, butter and chocolate reveal folds in our everyday realities.
Hannah Raye White is a filmmaker engaged in rendering abstract theoretical concepts into concrete representations through stop-motion animation. The paradox inherent in the act of bringing life to otherwise inanimate objects and using flat paper puppets to depict depth and dimensionality aligns with her interest in shining light on unexposed ideas about being. By exploring the processes of perception through stopping and starting the motion of the work, she allows for consideration of concepts such as seeing, breathing, and feeling. Her work pauses, isolates and expands upon what are frequently brief moments of perception, in order to attend to deep and automatic processes found within these brief exchanges. Her creation of a hand-made world becomes a representation of human perception as a construction. She is currently an MFA candidate in the Film, Video, Animation, and New Genres program at UW Milwaukee.
