Nikki Schuster
Austria, Germany 2013 / 8’

Nikki Schuster made Parasite from waste, breathing new life into insect wings, bones, hair, and plant fragments found in Argentine to create the characters in this animated short. Her film is a prime example of artistic recycling, which adds an additional, off-screen layer of meaning to ponder.
