Meejin Hong’s Soil is a paint-on-glass animated film exploring the life cycle of an organism and dualities within human nature. It was created frame by frame on a multi-plane setup using Akua Intaglio Inks and Akua Liquid Pigment. I utilized the reductive monotype technique to make each frame only to wipe away and start again for the next frame. With this medium, I found the temporary and repetitive nature of the process kindred to Buddhist sand mandalas that are destroyed once they have been completed. This impermanence allowed a stream of conscious brainstorming, propelling me into the fantastic, more primitive side of creation.

Meejin Hong is a director, animator, artist based in Los Angeles combining hand crafted 2d, stop motion and digital animation techniques for music videos, visuals for live performances, short films, and commercial work.
