"1438 Touches seeks to mobilize the female body by exposing its ability to transform and reconfigure itself through drawn animation. The film explores the tension between the representation of the female body and itsactive, expressive potential. The structure of the film follows a woman touching herself as the artist touches the medium, leading to a masturbatory act on a representational and material level. The film is constantly moving between the body of the drawn figure, the body of the paper and the tracings of my own body." --Abstract.
