Atkins' short films and cinematic performances borrow from the structure of traditional myths and fairy tales, while also representing personal symbolism. Set in a prairie landscape, the artist's movies are often punctuated with objects sewn from brightly coloured felt, emulating the whimsy and uncertainty of children's storybooks. Atkins intense installations generate magic by overlapping everyday life, dreams and inconclusive narratives.
