Kishlak Dwellers


Kishlak Dwellers is a 2/3D animated video based on A.R. Luria's 1933 book, Cognitive Development. Goss's animation explores the differences between speaking and writing, as well as the culture clash resulting from the 1930s Soviet expansion into Central Asia. This project extends the grammar and aesthetics of animation by combining narrative and documentary impulses seldom seen in the genre.

Goss references narrative and documentary traditions in her work. For the past six years she has been presenting experimental video works internationally at venues such as the New York Video Festival, the Rotterdam Film Festival, Women with Vision at the Walker Art Center and the ISEA Conference in Nagoya, Japan.
