A long overdue addition to the MIAF line-up

Abstract animation draws from the very core elements of cinematic art (movement, light, sound) and as a result can provide us with a greater understanding of that artform. It also presents us with the opportunity (and challenge) to experience works that go beyond what words and narrative can create.

Outstanding abstract animation will always be sprinkled throughout MIAF but for those who have wanted more and for those who are curious, this session provides a home for the best recently released abstract animation from all over the world.

In Sleep In
Dana Bubakova, Czech Republic, 2005 > 5’45
Under what might be a fractured moon, a figure tries to escape the night moths.
Can I Have 2 Minutes Of Your Time?
Brigitta Bodenauer, Austria, 2004 > 2’00
If early cubism could dance, this is what it would look like – Picasso would be proud.
One, Two, Three, Dusk
Felix Dufour-Laperriere, Canada, 2005 > 16’00
This anti-narrative’s non-linear, multilayered structure defies the title’s simplicity.
Dew Line
Joanna Priestley, USA, 2005 > 4’25
Bright shapes create an esoteric, organic environment full of unusual plant and animal life.
Blink Death
Rowan Williams, Australia, 2004 > 1’15
A short, sharp convention-defying piece of video art.
Haphazard Symphony
Joseph Feltus, Italy, 2005 > 3’00
Brooding figures move around one another, isolated, trying to make contact in a saturated world.
Liaisons
Jean Detheux, Canada, 2005 > 9’15
A highly tactile work with a strong sound element; a seamless merging of audio and image.

Utopique
Etienne Boguet, France, 2005 > 5’15
A stunning exercise in line, where creatures undulate above and below striking patterns.

Spare The Blood, Spoil The Child
Victor Orozco Ruminez, Germany, 2004 > 9’00
A fiery depiction of reminiscence; combining real dialogue with images of prayer and war.

Element Of Light
Richard Reeves, Canada, 2004 > 4’30
A fireworks display of bright lights and sound, evoking headlights, explosions and candles.
The Curse Of The Voodoo Child
Steven Woloshen, Canada, 2005 > 3’30.
Hendrix lays down the ultimate soundtrack to partner the high voltage imagery of this handmade gem.
