Two Ways Down

2014  Animated Installation 

A hand drawn animated installation and film Two Ways Down, which takes inspiration from the Hieronymus Bosch work Garden of Heavenly Delights.  Reflecting on the momentary nature of life, Heit’s fantastical piece uses thrown shadows from tabletop dioramas and a reflected and refracted animated projections to create a fleeting world where human-animal hybrids, specters and body parts morph and flit across the walls.  

This project was funded in part by a grant from the Regional Arts and Culture Council.
