Why You Were Born is a Kodachrome Super8 animation that utilizes found images delicately cut from magazines from the 40’s through the 70’s.  A hand-held camera creates agitation and a frenetic frame speed penetrates women’s roles shown in advertising, shattering them and then offering humorous feminist solutions. 2001 (click on image to view YouTube excerpt)
