Priscilla is an experimental, abstract stop-motion animation. It was first presented at Soundings 3.3 at the Center for New Music, with Del Sol String Quartet. The soundings concert series pairs a work by a contemporary composer with the work of a local visual artist in San Francisco. Soundings 3.3 featured Jack Body's "Epicycle" (1989).
The title is taken from Italo Calvino's Cosmicomics, in which "Priscilla" is the name of the first ever multicellular organism.
Priscilla combined the methods of stop-motion animation, puppetry, and 3d-printing. The "puppets" are abstract constructions of mostly string themselves, evocative of unfamiliar organisms or constellations.
