Nostalgia : n.1. A bittersweet longing for things, persons, or situations of the past

I am really obssessed with nostalgia, I cant stop myself buying anything that reminds me of either my grandmas house or where I lived when I was a little girl. I love anything that evokes that lost feeling. I think the last show I visited by Kirsty E Smith also rekindled my love of anything kitsch. These two videos seem to be really relevant to me right now, I think the first has a great nostalgic feeling, the second just reminds how fantastic simplicity can be sometimes, I am just starting to do a bit of stop motion animation and It really can be best to stick to basics with good camera shots.

Close Encounters of a Frillip Moolog Kind

I recently visisted the Solihull Gallery to see Kirsty .E. Smiths exhibition, I was impressed by her work and left feeling newly inspired, I have been focusing on animating recently and it was good to see some exciting installations.
