“The creation of My father and I dance in outer space began with a question I had about the physical gestures of my father who is now deceased. I wanted to visualize what it might be like if we could dance together. It could only happen in this futuristic, otherworldly landscape. I used stop-motion animation techniques to create the sense of flight, dance and intergalactic connection.”
