About Elaine

My Lavender Bedroom is a personal project, exploring the concept of the inner child and art. It is a mixture of stop motion animation as well as dreams made from a variety of old videos taken during my childhood. It explores the connection of a child with their childhood bedroom, home and life to ‘heal’ the present.
It is a short film that illustrates a young girl’s life and time spent in her bedroom. Nothing really happens at first. She reads books, does her homework, and plays with her toys. But then things begin crumbling. She grows sad, lonely and then overcomes that heartache. In the end, she leaves her room. The room that once held laughter and security is now empty…
“While I am writing this I observe a little demon trying to abscond my words and even my thoughts and turning them over into the rapidly flowing river of images, surging from the mists of the past, portraits of a little boy, bewildered and wondering at an incomprehensibly beautiful and hideously profane and deceitful world” – Carl Jung
