Donnie Darko and Frank Rippling A Portal
Donnie Darko is a mind bending story about a troubled schizophrenic boy who begins to see dismal hallucinations…among them, what is figured to be his imaginary friend, Frank the creepy bunny. Frank tells him the world will end in 28 days, 6 hours, 42 minutes and 12 seconds. Donnie begins to dabble in lofty ideas such as time travel, wormholes, portals and astrophysics, leading the viewers to wonder if Donnie Darko is insane or brilliant far beyond normal thinking. This was built for Model Gal’s Hop To It
challenge…which asks participants to build mainland scale figures that remind us of hopping, in celebration of April and Easter. Logically, I sought inspiration from a dark and depraved story.
