On March 11th and 12th, 2011, I performed Fudgie’s Death at International Festival of Animated Objects in Calgary.
GROWING UP LINDA
Fudgie’s Death was a segment from Growing Up Linda in which a woman who believes she’s the daughter of a famous ice cream mogul must come to terms with her troubled past. In Fudgie’s Death, table-top pop-up books transform into full-screen cinema.

CALGARY ANIMATED OBJECTS SOCIETY
The International Festival of Animated Objects is a biennial celebration of puppets, masks, and all things animated curated by Xstine Cook and the Calgary Animated Objects Society. The 2011 festival took place over four days – from March 9th to March 13th.
While in Calgary, I was interviewed by the Calgary Herald and a local radio station, and photographed by one of the festival organizers, Sean Dennie for his coffee table book, Who’s the Puppet Now?
I also presented my lecture, Object/Fetish at Club Sapien, and introduced a screening of Handmade Puppet Dreams.
