Mother Teresa

Mother Teresa is a moving image artwork by Michelle Poonawalla. Made during lockdown, the piece is part of the Stop Motion collection, which reflects on the qualities of the stop-motion animation technique, with its laborious, contemplative precision.

Mother Teresa was a Roman Catholic nun. She devoted her life to millions of poor, destitute and downtrodden people.

She was a ray of hope to these people and in 1979 she was awarded the Nobel Prize for the work she had done. She worked for charity and had a simple life beyond human needs. She had a calming effect and a strong connection with humanity.

When making a stop motion video inspired by Mother Teresa, one is reminded of her strength, determination, love & hope. This determination and care is echoed in the stop motion technique. These are qualities we all need to be reminded of in the present situation.
