We all watch each other. Nuances in the interactions we partake in speak as there is always something to relate to in the subtleties of behavior. These relatable moments are the ones I care to capture and have as a constant connection to shared emotion amidst all the distance. Online I tend to be brief in my illustrations of these interactions, the same way these moments are to the outsider. In the real the experience is one directly had by the participant(s), allowing me to attempt to have the subtleties linger and build off of them to make multi-layered connections. My work almost always starts with video/sound that cycles back on to itself in one format or another.
Process and medium are subject to change, and do often. Most recent work has been interweaving rotoscoped animations with glitched videos.
My name is Brittany Nickels.
I work under the guise, Suture Blue.
