Jody Zellen’s The Human Touch is a series of Los Angeles street art animations that playfully opens a new dimension to public art. Zellen’s digital animations can be seen as collaborations with unaware street artists that create permanence with often ephemeral street art. Through movement, Zellen pays homage to the original artist while dislocating their work for a new, global audience.
