Aqua has created animated films exploring the themes of ritual,
journeys, transformation, and the human spirit since 1976 with her
1st animated short, Penetralia. Much of her work reflects an interest in
symbols, mythology, and prehistoric and tribal cultures, and
includes elements of rhythm, dance, and music.
Her award-winning films have been screened nationally and internationally, at film festivals, museums, and universities. Aqua’s animation also appears regularly on Sesame Street.
Karen's recent film Sensorium is a hand-drawn experimental animation exploring the relationship between music and image that is inspired by dance gestures and movements found in nature such as water and tide pools, the film is a study of sound/motion synthesis.
