ARTLIFE ANIMATION artists from footscray community arts centre
August 15th @ 6pm
223 Barkley St
Using an old record player, ArtLife will create a modified 3D zoetrope – phonotrope – animation that is installed onsite and timed to the frame rate of a digital HD camera. The animation will be played back “live” through a projection screen. “Live” because it will be inter-spliced with visually subversive loops to trick the audience’s perception of the physical zoetrope in front of them.
The phonotrope will be the fairytale transformation from the imperfect reality to the dream (Self?), inter-spliced with the unfounded nightmare fears of what could go wrong. Our perpetual chase for change is subverted by the idea that what exists in front of us can be changed through our perception.
