Experimental Animation

Eyeworks Festival: Funky Figures from Eyeworks Festival on Vimeo.

I'm getting together visuals for my time based media class. We're looking at experimental animation this week. These 3 in particular caught my eye. The first from Oskar Fischinger, made in 1938!! The oldest example I could find. It's really beautiful and so interesting as well to see how it was made. The second from the Eyeworks Festival vimeo channel - a lovely mix of different styles, textures etc. The final one is was created for a Jon Hopkins performance. He's amazing!! I had the pleasure of seeing one of his shows in London about a year ago now, so inspiring.

All of this is really making me want to spend more time creating! All my time is spent planning lessons etc these days.

Oz 2015

A very small selection of photographs from one of the most amazing trip i've ever taken. I think i'll turn these into prints and paintings. Really should have taken more photos though! I was shooting video for The Underscore Orkestra and Suadela Bellydance so when I didn't have a camera in my hands for that I ended up not taking extra snaps.
