Godzilla by Harold Olejarz
Godzilla is a creature of breathtaking power with awesome destructive
abilities. Many monsters like him exist in the legends and literature of
most cultures. The Beowulf legend presents the monster Grendel, who kills
and mames Danes until Beowulf slays the beast. In John Gardner's retelling
of Beowulf, which narrates the story from the perspective of Grendel, we
see the other side of the beast, learning of the creatures loneliness,
torment and even human-like emotions. Godzilla is a series of digital
images that presents this other side of the monster. These images
visualize an animated dialog between monsters, with two small plastic
wind-up toys as actors.
