Lost and Found: Recent Experimental Animation
Bits of intricate lace, an outdated video game, and a water-soaked ledger are among the disparate materials used to create the animation art included in tonight's program. The silent-film actress Lillian Gish, magic lantern slides relating the story of Alice in Wonderland, and J.M.W. Turner's painting Slave Ship are among the artists' inspirations. Whether dreamscapes or videoscapes, hand-painted films or videos painted with computer pixels, these works suggest the diversity evident in recent experimental animation.
