" In Other Worlds, is a stop-motion, animated video inspired by experimental film and scientific imagery. The materials used are everyday items found in the home. From the kitchen, I take vegetable matter such as onion skin and fennel fronds. I also make use of liquids such as molasses, oil, and dish soap. I bring these together and set them with home decor objects - battery operated tea lights, for example. There is a little manipulation but the movements and swirling of fluids is mostly left to chance. I frame, observe, and document these ephemeral moments with a macro lens and animation software. The results are abstracted visuals that evoke the biological or cosmological. This is what really interests me: Turning the ordinary into something new and strange. " ——Sandra Pascuzzi
