Mary GeorgescuWhat 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 – penelopegazin.tumblr.com

A young orphan, Nicu finds himself all alone wandering through Tulcea, Romania, searching for his long lost twin, trying desperately to reclaim a part of himself in the process. Despite the clues laid before him, out of frustration and a deepening uncontrollable sorrow in finding his twin, he fails to catch what is hanging right before his eyes.
