Congratulations to Naomi Saungsomboon who is one of ten creatives Creative Review selected to feature in their annual Gradwatch showcase, where they spotlight the art and design grads who they feel are producing brilliant work. UCA BA (Hons) Animation 2021 graduate Naomi specialises in stop-motion puppetry and themes that peel back the lid on the human condition – from physical intimacy to the afterlife – and the relationships we have with ourselves and each other. Saungsomboon’s evocative model-making and deft use of motion combine to capture the minute facial expressions that contain so many of our feelings. Her claymation short Budget Double sees a couple awkwardly adapt to a night spent on two twin beds. Meanwhile her graduation film 'Is It Dead?' deals with the things in life that are so universal yet difficult to put into words, told through beautifully composed frames and puppets that on the surface appear eerie, but feel ultimately as human as the rest of us.
