Jill explores the idea of the rebellious cartoon body. Set in a plain white room reminiscent of a gallery space or a testing laboratory, an acousmatic voice interacts with Jill by command. Jill is a cartoon that shows the wear and tear of slapstick, maintaining dents on a body that seems to feel no pain. The piece speaks to power dynamics and the ambivalent relationship between creator and creation, recalling Gertie the Dinosaur and the asymmetrical interaction of Frankenstein to his monster.
