Joanna Harmon Artist's Statement
I have trained for the past four years as an actor in an intensive BFA conservatory program. The spoken word and the movement of the body have been my tools. A course in puppetry last year kindled my imagination to explore the craft of giving life to inanimate objects. What can these objects in motion
convey that the spoken word cannot? Most recently, I have utilized stop-motion animation, digital photography, and hand made crafts as the mediums for my artwork. I strive to create art that develops through the inherent qualities of the medium at hand.
