An experimental stop motion animation developed during my micro-residency at the Toronto Animated Image Society (TAIS). Oh Deer is an experimental stop motion animation inspired by traditional Chinese shadow puppetry. Elements of real experiences, dreams and stories learned from my time at Spark Box Studios in Picton, Ontario are combined to create an eerie story that exists in between reality and the imagined. Follow along with two siblings and a doe and fawn, who unknowingly cross paths in a bizarre adventure for all involved

Yen Linh Thai is an interdisciplinary artist, muralist and illustrator based in Mississauga. Her work explores the whimsical and is largely inspired by her heritage, stories and storytelling. Shadow puppetry, animation, folk tales and the stories her parents tell her are all things she has drawn inspiration from. Linh strives to make art that exists on the cusp of two and three dimensions.
