Abscission
2016
After Effects, Photoshop

An abscission is when a plant naturally sheds part of itself, such as its fruit or leaves. Soaked in blood red and littered with pink blossoms, Abscission is composited from solid 3D forms, distorted particle systems, skeletal wireframes, and a single blue apple. The piece is inspired by personal trauma, depicting standing strong but battered amongst the rubble.
