In 2017, Musician and Biologist Anna Brooks and I were awarded the inaugural Moldwin Prize – the opportunity to create a piece of art inspired by the work of space physicist professor Mark Moldwin. 

This project was the result of a semester-long residency project with the Moldwin Space Lab. Anna Brooks and I wanted to convey the poetry behind the focus of Professor Moldwin's work – the protection our Earth's magnetic field provides us from solar winds, and the beautiful consequence of the Aurora Borealis. 
We used a mixture of live puppetry, hand-cut paper and stop motion techniques to create a whimsical animation style. When it was premiered, I am most proud of how it was received not just by Professor Moldwin and his colleagues, but by their small children.
