Embrace (2012) is a 2D motion graphics work that combines live action video of a dance performance with graphic effects to demonstrate an artist’s journey towards creative ecstasy. By using a visually rich multi-planar space in tandem with three distinct color palettes, Pearsall reveals the difficult and time-consuming creative struggles that are a necessary component of the artistic process.
