Beginning her career in animation, Michelle works together with her partner Uri. Their work has expanded beyond the traditional: their art straddles experimental genres and unfamiliar mediums, fusing handcrafted images and new technologies into contemporary experiences. Through drawings and films, their work is frequently characterized by a poetic sensibility and fragmented narratives exploring past and present, fact and fiction.
Their current projects continue to test the frontiers of immersive art and moving images with a focus on collaborative projects and cross-media innovation. Originally from Israel, Michelle and Uri have been living and working in Viborg for over 10 years and both teach at The Animation Workshop, leading professional training programmes such as ANIDOX.
