The series explores a reoccurring gilt-bronze, “Moorish” aesthetic invention oft evidenced in European Medieval and Renaissance art. The arena in which this aesthetic is played in the series removes the ever-present narrative of servitude and alienation (persistent in European depictions) to expand upon how “Black and Gold” as a palette can create a variety of narratives. The storytelling throughout "Of Another Kind" highlights how removing markers in portrayals (based solely on utility) can transform the very notion of what an aesthetic can become.
In 2007, Sunstrum began experimenting with stop-motion animation. At this time, she was operating with an alter-ego named ‘Asme.’ In many ways, Asme is an archetypal hero: she is a mythological time-and-space traveller who slips between the real and thefantastical. In the animation, Asme enters a grassy field. moments later, she encounters another version of herself, and later yet, the two Asme’s encounter a third Asme. The three Asme’s interact with each other, until finally the third Asme blows breath from her mouth into the mouths of the first two.
