Description:
20-minute conference presentation. Sabrina Schmid’s discourse titled ‘Why Abstract Animation Matters – Visual literacy and other worlds’ discusses her recent abstract animations, their impetus and inspiration contextualised within ‘artist auteur’ films, where her aim was to give a handmade aesthetic to computer animations. Focusing on ‘artists who made films’ within the continuing heritage of abstract animation, the wider antecedents of abstraction trace to early avant-garde art and artists inextricably linked to experimental film/animation, weaving through to contemporary abstract animation works as a distinct artistic genre. The conference website summarises the context of the wider topic ‘Why Abstract Animation Matters’: “Two leading academics/artist-practitioners present a compelling picture of the debt we owe abstract animation through their experiential findings and experiences participating in the global cinematic/moving image culture. Sabrina Schmid (UK) … is an artist, animator and practice-based researcher (originally from Melbourne) who joined the School of Computing in 2001 as Senior Lecturer in Computer Animation at Teesside University. Sabrina's current research interest explores abstract imagery in form and experiment with digital techniques. Paul Fletcher (Melbourne, AUS) Animator/lecturer at the Victorian College of the Arts School of Film and Television. Paul blends elements of docu-fantasy, animation, abstraction and visual music to create installations, performances and short films - and regularly collaborates with other visual and performance artists and musicians.”
