Melissa McClung present Video Sketchbook
During this surreal moment in history, every day comes with a new emotion and a new narrative. If my job as an artist is to reflect the world in real time, it seems only fitting to “sketch” days as they come and go. My Video Sketchbook is a diary of four months in quarantine, filtered through my imagination via original footage and animations, archival footage, and stock images. In each entry, I hold moments in my hand and examine them before they shape-shift and flutter away.
