Amalia Chimera

Amalia is yet another person who's work is just utterly enchanting. Apart from the photographs of hers I have posted here, she makes the most amazing animations. I strongly urge you to see them all on her website.

proper noun
1. a girl with a viewfinder for an eye, a lens in place of arms, and a tripod for legs.
(full name: Amalia Royce Sieber)

chi • me • ra | kï • mæ • rä
1. (in Greek mythology) a fire-breathing female monster with a lion's head, a goat's body, and a serpent's tail.
2. any mythical animal with parts taken from various animals.

Hey there, inquiring mind. My name is Amalia Sieber, internet moniker Amalia Chimera– this tends to require some clarification, as I often get emails addressed to "Miss Chimera." The confusion is all my fault.

I am a photographer, stop animator, motion graphics designer, and interaction designer. (What a handful.) I studied in the 5 year design program at DAAP, majored in Digital Design, and graduated in June '09.

I fill my free time taking many photos, drawing, sewing, collaging, losing sleep...I often bring the things I love into what I create, and I use those interests as motifs. My style is then a little whimsical, a little confusing, sometimes dark, but always colorful.
