The world works in funny ways. I’ve been talking about working on stop-motion animation this semester, and what does one of my instructors bring me the other day? A poster advertising an artist talk and a workshop sponsored by the MADT (Media Arts and Digital Technologies) department at ACAD. So, I’m taking a workshop: Video and Animation in Physical Space with Marieke Verbiesen. Here’s an example of a large project she did, a music video for a band called Baskerville. See her blog for more info.
So we’ve been working around a theme of a playground, building this triangular angular sort of hut, with triangular pillows inside. There will also be a mural, and a time-lapse video of the production of the video. We built a giant projection screen to show it on, and there is a sound component to the installation as well. The opening is Friday night! (I’ll post photos later…)
