BIOGRAPHY

Squirrel enthusiast,

Fan of oatmeal.

 

Lumi Barron is a Finnish-American artist working in stop motion animation and interactive installation. She graduated from Carnegie Mellon University with a double concentration in Electronic Time Based Media and Sculpture, Installation, and Site-Work in 2020. Since then she has shrunk down the sculptures and has been working primarily in stop motion. 

 

Fascinated by the possibilities stop motion allows for, she explores both traditional and experimental techniques in her animations. Working with a large range of mediums, she’s always excited to get her hands on something new to try, be that materials, techniques or technologies. She creates all of the puppets and sets seen in her videos. 

 

She finds joy in places where the mundane crosses into the peculiar, and in the logic that fairy tale monsters live by. Her installation works are motivated by spaces that evoke a sense of wonder. Her animations are explorations of materials, technologies, and small moments in the day-to-day. 

 

Currently based in Chicago.
