In "I am the shadows shifting, burned through and filled with light", Maggie Hannelore Fae uses wood, paper, and stop-motion animation to explore time as a tool that connects who we are and the feelings we are going through in the present moment as well as our past and future. The way we spend time is the way we spend ourselves. This show invites viewers to consider how they perceive time, themselves, and their relationship with the world around them. Understanding time can help us understand ourselves. Understanding ourselves can help us understand others. Time is a path to empathy.
Maggie Hannelore Fae is a multimedia artist based in Duluth, MN. Using paper, found materials, and stop motion animation, she creates self-reflective work to develop empathetic and honest connections with people that, as an introvert, she often finds difficult to make. Through long hours of introspection during labor-heavy creation, her goal is to make work that is unfiltered and genuine to her experience. It is a form of self-acceptance as well as an offering of sincerity to the world, given in the hope that that vulnerability and openness are contagious. She has found through self-discovery comes acceptance and through that acceptance comes a curiosity about what other people might have gone through to become who they are. Through her work, she wants to spark empathy.
