HABITABLE SPACES ANIMATION BY CAIT DAVIS: LITTLE BIG SKY
Check out the animation that 2017 artist Cait Davis made during her time at Habitable Spaces. The piece features our mayor Shirley Nolen as the bull, our city attorney Sam Drugan as the cowboy, and the notorious Johnny Harborth as the train.
After interviewing three Kingsbury locals, director Cait Davis used the audio from their interviews to create stop-motion animation where the construction of each puppet “actor” is influenced by the content of the interview stories. From the inside of a fabricated miniature honky tonk bar, each character shares a story of their rural American home-town; examining small-town lore and the importance of embracing humanity's rich and textured history viewed through the lens of Kingsbury, Texas.
