NO|ON 2015: Christina Mattison Ebert’s “Ginseng”

What is NO|ON? Short for “Narrative Object, Objective Narrative” it embodies the idea that every object contains its own narrative and every successful narrative strives for a unique
objective. For the annual NO|ON show, students write, visualize and execute a five-minute short story utilizing their object, an original character they create, and (in 2015) the color Blue. Required to incorporate elements of spoken word, visual projection/film, and props, these fully realized five-minute visual narratives were performed, presented and critiqued in studio with guest critic, artist, illustrator and animator, Penelope Gazin –

Estelle, a bright and curious 30-year-old woman, toils away at a boring job in a pharmaceutical research lab where she distracts herself by covertly studying homeopathic medicine on the side. When Estelle is fired, a run-in with a young boy in trouble leads to a journey through a surreal world in which Estelle begins to understand her true self and how to follow her heart.

After a lot of work, here’s Christina’s NO|ON project, Ginseng!
