May 29, 2015:
Clarke University senior Hannah Goldsmith had her Claymation titled “Monster” selected for the New Hampshire Institute of Art Coming of Age: 30 and Under juried exhibit.
Goldsmith, of Dyersville, Iowa, is a fine arts major with a minor in philosophy and writing. The exhibit will run from July 3 to August 27 in Sharon, N.H.
Goldsmith’s animation synopsis reads:
“A mother and daughter sit on a bench waiting for the bus. The mother, inattentive, reads while the daughter quietly munches on a bag of candies. A strange purple creature scurried up onto the bench next to the girl, much to her excitement. She tries to get her mother’s attention but is quickly silenced and the mother continues to read. The daughter befriends the creature until it steals some of her candies and mysteriously grows. Now worried, the daughter tries to get her mother’s attention again, but is still ignored. The creature then devours the whole bag of candy and continues to grow. The mother, unaware, continues to read until the monster grows so large it smacks into her. The mother finally looks over and is terrified to find her daughter is no longer sitting next to her, but a giant beast is instead.”
Goldsmith’s Claymation was created in response to a project by Clarke Assistant Professor Jessica Teckemeyer’s Sculpture III: Time, Performance and Installation Course.
