Extended Animation: Digital Effects, Corporate Logos and Style
CURATED BY HANNE MUGAAS
Gallery F15, Moss, Norway
September 1 - November 11, 2007
Extended animation; digital effects, corporate logos and style. The screening includes artists who are using digital editing and animation tools as part of their practice in order to manipulate popular entertainment and iconography, mimic corporate design, or visualize technology's impact on contemporary imagery. From Bernadette Corporation's use of computer software to Pierre Bismuth's montage of found cinematic material; from Dara Birnbaum's exploration of the cartoon character Wonder Woman through linear editing to Charles Broskoski's digital customizations, the artists in the screening utilize repetition, movement and abstraction as analytical tools to visualize the mechanisms of technology, entertainment and culture.
