STALK is a 23-minute experimental single screen film created from the elements of an October 2021 NYC Performa Biennial commission. Adapted from the fairytale Jack and the Beanstalk, STALK is a critique of corporate farming using GMO seeds and the effects of economic pressure on a small independent farming community. It features vocal work, performers and stop motion animation. STALK was shot in 16mm film, transferred to HD and edited on Avid Media Composer 8.5.

Described as a key figure of the Pictures Generation, in her work Ericka Beckman investigates how individuals shape their self-image based on outside influencers during an age of mass media. Her films and installations use color, sound and movement to examine cultural signs and subjectivity, particularly with regard to labor, leisure and gender.
