Paper money and postage stamps are just some of the two-dimensional media that artist Kristi Malakoff loves to use. Having grown up on Disney movies and books by Roald Dahl and C.S. Lewis, Kristi has always been intrigued by notions of fantasy and the possibility of escape from dreary reality into new, marvelous worlds through everyday objects such as a closet (wardrobe for you English), a peach, or an elevator. As an artist she loves to create 3-dimensional animations out of 2-dimensional media. She hopes that by presenting them in a new way, she can challenge their symbolism as well as bring back the handmade element ti these manufactures products.
I love my dogs, reading books, and taking great pictures with my battered but still functional digital camera. Taking great pictures with a high end camera is almost too easy, producing fantastic images with an outdated one is an accomplishment by itself.
