For these three intricate experimental shorts, animator Stacey Steers repurposes images from the silent cinema, layering them into handmade collages of Victorian-era pictorial motifs and creating surreal dreamscapes in which women are threatened by unnatural predators. In Edge of Alchemy, Mary Pickford is a scientist and Janet Gaynor the humanoid she creates, a being menaced but curiously unfazed by oversize insects and skin-piercing plants. Night Hunter (2011) presents Lillian Gish as a lonely seamstress whose home is gradually overrun by snakes and giant eggs, and Phantom Canyon (2006) applies 19th-century figure studies by Eadweard Muybridge to a phantasmagoric tale about a nubile young woman pursued by a man with bat wings.
