Abstract animation is a rich, challenging element of the overall creative animation picture. In some cases these films utilise the most elemental componants of cinema – light, colours, the simple intrigue of making a collection of still images ‘move’. Abstract animation can sometimes ask a lot of its audience but the rewards flow from experiencing works that go beyond what words and narrative can create.

A fascinating partial theme of this year’s selection seems to be the deconstruction or reconstruction of live action cinematic works – sometimes subtly, sometimes breaking established images down to the barely recognisable DNA of the original.

Stratification EXPATIATE
Michael Salkeld
UK, 4'00
A breathtaking feast of ever changing geometrical visual imagery with more than a nod to the science and art of architecture.
passing by
Huan Chen
USA, 1'00
A deceptively simple, enormously enjoyable short tribute to the the scratch film technique.
sequence of itinerary
Po Kuang Chen
Taiwan, 5'00
A futuristic and multi dimensional swarm of trails, ribbons and clusters cleverly evoking a sense both of space distance and compressed claustrophobia.
Paths Of G
Dietmar Offinhuber
Austria, 1'30
A walking inspection down the line of a collection of frames from Kubrick’s “Paths Of Glory”.
La Petite Illusion
Michaela Schwentner
Austria, 3’45
A collection of reconstructed cinematic imagery inspired by the unique visuality of damaged digital formats.
Lajka's Memory
Eva Toth
Hungary, 4'00
An abstract animated tribute to an abstract artist. A rich, diverse cavalcade of symbols, visual samples and cut & paste displays.
Circle
Laurie Gibbs
UK, 3’25

This film explores the myriad ways a circular motif can be incorporated into a piece of moving visual art.
30 Ways To Walk
Jeff Gill
USA, 1'00
A complex manipulation of photographic grains, effects and styles depicting the simplest of human activities.
Compisition #01
Rene Adema
Holland, 3'45
Think of a digital, B&W tribute to the continual strip films fo Fischinger and McLaren with a sparse electronic soundtrack.
Lijn
Louk van Kalmthout
Holland, 1'30
Twisting, twining, dancing, pirouetting black lines engaged in a digital dance.
Daydream Mechanics V
Jean Detheux
Canada, 12'15
A living, breathing, almost overwhelming digital kaleidiscope passionately inspired by the music of Michael Oesterie.
SX80 bh
Ricardo Mehedff
Brazil, 5'00
A continual montage of shards of fractured, out of tune, faltering TV images which demand – but deny – definitive meaning.
Morning Lemon
Daan Spruijt
France, 9'00
A taunt blend of genetic mutation juxtaposed against an imagined (or real) breakdown of a relationship.
