Lullaby for inferno, 2019. Stop-motion animation, 1:23 minutes.
This stop-motion animation exhibits a scenario of what Dante’s inferno might look like and uses one of the stories of Cain and Albe from Bible which is also a classic example of envy and betrayal. In addition, this animation also combines with other elements such like the scapegoat and cross crucifix, basically through two different scenes to show the change of inferno after the betrayal has occurred and further express the theme of self-redemption.

All the figures and tiny constructions in this animation are handmade, which is a challenge for Qingge because she is not very good at handwork, fortunately her major is radio and television directing when she was in China which means she’ve had many classes that relate to Film and Art before, what’s more when Qingge came to Berkeley as an exchange student she basically got a chance to have a further learning in this field. And the Italian Renaissance Art which is one of the lectures Qingge took this semester really gave her lots of inspirations, it’s difficult but interesting to learn a different culture and history. Meanwhile, it’s also thankful that professor Lange provided opportunities to Qingge and her classmates so they can create what ever they want for the final project.
