Pazit Harnoy-Cohen: “Thoughts”

For Pazit Harnoy-Cohen’s final project at the Holon Institute of Technology in Israel, she created “Thoughts,” a stream-of-consciousness daydream worked out in mixed media.

Reminiscent of Johnny Kelly’s “Procrastination” or some of Michel Gondry’s stop-action animation, “Thoughts” looks at the world through a child’s eyes, a world where objects take on lives of their own, ponderings meander pleasantly, and vegetables engage in civil war.

The film is cut into three distinct parts, and while I like the semi-narrative structure of the middle, I think Harnoy-Cohen’s at her most charming when she’s stop-action animating, as in the first and third parts of the film. It’ll be fun to keep our eye on her as she builds her career. Good luck, Pazit!

This is a lovely piece. Very nice movement in the clay section and the soft sculptures in the last section look great. Well done!
