"In her extraordinary graphic novel, Lauren Haldeman layers the warfare of soccer over the battlefields of Bull Run, where her soccer team would practice and compete. The park and surrounding town of Fairfax Station, Virginia set the landscape for the book, where the narrator regularly encounters spectral visions of wounded soldiers at night, and where bullet shells, buttons, and human bones surface around the soccer fields in daylight."
I like to make multimedia work that combine illustration, video, animation, sound and text
