As our first artist-in-residence, Lucia Riffel spent a few weeks hunched over her laptop in Spring 2019, translating her animation work from the screen to the page. The resulting flipbooks—collectively titled HANDHELD GETAWAYS—are tiny windows into contemplative, dream-like spaces that reveal themselves, pixel-by-pixel, over repeated viewings. So slow down, scroll around, and get away from it all.
