Cryptomythology (2015)

 

These animation excerpts approach the intersection of science and mythology: instances where mythology has informed science; science has explained mythology, and science has taken on the role of future mythology.

Cryptozoology (Installation Version) (2015)

 

I have been developing an experimental hybrid documentary on "paleocryptozoology" and "geomythology," the field of researching ancient mythology in the context of an explanatory science. I received a travel fellowship from Tufts University to research and film at the sites and museums in New Mexico and Arizona that Adrienne Mayor has discussed in her scholarship. This edit was created to be shown in a gallery setting.
