The title of the hand drawn animation A Million To One (For Blue Velvet) refers to the equal mass of ants to humans and our general diminutive position on earth. Furthermore, the work is a favorable nod to the symbolic opening scene of the 1986 David Lynch film Blue Velvet, where suburbia is not quite as it seems on the surface and foreshadows what is to come. An amalgamation of abstraction and representation, the sound and imagery fluctuates between that of formal patterning and something perhaps more disquieting.
