Goodbye Shadowy combines stop motion and time-lapse animation. In the pale light of February, you can see the shadow of a living and evolving animal mobile. As the light moves, the development and growth of different animals can be seen. The wistful but humorous film shows the passage of light during the day, from dusk till dawn.
Vappu Rossi is a visual artist based in Helsinki, Finland. Her work finds form in a variety of media: paintings, animations, installations, light boxes and graphic prints. Rossi’s work has been exhibited in museums, galleries and festivals around the world since the late 1990s and her works can be found in many domestic and international collections. The study of change and passage of time, giving visual form for slow process or magical metamorphose, is characteristic for Rossi’s media art. Her videos are minimalist both in their humour and colour, often silent or ascetic of their sound world.
