The Peace of Wild Things
2022, Adobe After Effects, Adobe Photoshop

The Peace of Wild Things is a stop-motion animation created by Katherine Taylor and inspired by the Wendell Berry poem, The Peace of Wild Things. This work follows a person as they journey through nature, reflecting on the beauty in stillness. The stop-motion animation process lends itself to meditative creation as each frame is cared for and reflected on -- and that process of caring and reflecting is intended to be continued through each viewer as they contemplate their personal connection to the environment.

The Peace of Wild Things Planning

Planning sketches, character design, and costume design were completed in Procreate after the research phase of The Peace of Wild Things project.

The stop-motion character for this project was then constructed with balsa wood, armature wire, and modeling clay.

Costume Design came to life through hand sewing of repurposed fabrics and handmade patterns specific to the dimensions of the stop motion figure.
