“Hungry Ghost” (00:06:52) by Guido Devadder, Kaitlin McSweeney, Belgium, 2022
The feelings of both loss and desire are among the first and strongest emotions we experience as human beings. Desire is what keeps us alive, propagates us, but also destroys us. ‘Hungry Ghost’ is a poetic journey into the hazy netherworld of human craving, visualised through looping zoetrope animations.
Guido Devadder is a visual artist based in Leuven, Belgium, working mostly with graphic narrative and experimental animation — published, screened and exhibited internationally. His work explores the shady side of human nature and how we deal with it, often through a combination of abandoned or forgotten technology and new media. He lectures at the Audiovisual Arts department of LUCA School of Arts in Brussels and is currently working on a PhD in the Arts.
Kaitlin McSweeney is a multi-media visual and sound artist based in the San Francisco Bay Area. Her current work consists of recording textural samples and vocal tracks in found resonant spaces, which she then pieces together into compositions.
