They Wonder was animated from performance documentation. The performance took place at Montserrat's 301 gallery, Beverly, MA, and was documented by William Gurin. It took me a year to animate one minute. To me it made sense to animate the performance because Wonder Woman was originally a comic book. The performance They Wonder is an endurance based performance. However the drawing and animation process is durational. I am interested in how the animation begins to speak back to the original performance documentation. There are moments when an audience member appears on screen or the camera moves and creates a rupture in the space that is created by the drawings.
