The Children Of Gaia

Isabella, Age 14

  • Video
  • Stop-frame claymation video
  • A4 landscape

The animation tells the story of Gaia’s children, the Hecatoncheires being inside the Earth. I wanted to explore the character of Gaia, the Greek goddess of the Earth. In my animation, humankind bury her children, whereas in the original story, her husband buries them. I used the story to explore the human impact on the Earth and how we mistreat the very thing we originate from.
