Intro to Butterflying

Butterflying is a birthday gift for Harlean Carpenter—or, rather, the woman from whose imagination Harlean Carpenter sprang. This woman has been a virtual collaborator of mine for some time now. That she is both an exquisite pinup model and a gifted poet makes her as much the perfect subject matter for me as the ideal collaborator. I am fascinated by the pop culture of which pinup models are a part. This animation is rooted in a photograph of Harlean Carpenter and animates a portion of her poem, Butterflying.

Animation duration: 85 seconds, before looping.
