Zina Nicole Lahr a great artist, puppeteer, designer and maker of different creative projects. She is an self-diagnosed Compulsive Creative Disorder[CCD]. Creativity emerges in everyone from the child hood, but for some one this level of creativity and energy to create anything art from daily object from surroundings and even trashed items – we thought useless. Talented girl, which we don’t know about her, until we saw her documentary done by her friend Stromy Pyeatte. Let’s see some words from her friend on her Vimeo page.
In August 2013 her friend Zina asked if I could shoot a video for her portfolio. She needed something that would showcase her work but also tell a little bit about her personality and her interests. We had two days to shoot and edit so we shot an interview and smashed something together to meet our deadline. On November 20, 2013 Zina passed away due to a hiking accident in Ouray, CO. After the funeral I revisited the footage and made this short as an attempt to capture her personality and creativity. I never planned to release it online but now I have a chance to share her and her creations with all of you! For all who are part of the Zina Lahr love bomb, this is for you!
