Portland’s long history of nurturing independent animators continues with Pacific Northwest College of Art’s two week immersion program this summer. Here is more information from PNCA:
With the advent of digital technologies, the appearance of hybrid moving images has emerged as the norm — rendering boundaries between live action, animation and image processing as porous as the platforms of display that host them. Boundary Crossings embraces the hybrid-moving image by combining critical thought, fine art practice and digital technologies. Traversing the terrain of space, time and form, this two-week innovative institute explores the future of film as a form of architecture and also as an extension of the body through infused theory and practice sessions, lectures, screenings and hands-on making. In redefining animation and the manipulated image, animated art forms are pushed beyond the movies to permeate our cultural landscape.
Application is open to practitioners working in the field and upper division undergraduate and graduate level students. Guided by internationally renowned scholars and current practitioners, students will select from two strands for a two-week course of study:
Gizmos & Gadgets
Animating Public Space
Who are the internationally renowned scholars and current practitioners?
So glad you asked! They include Rose Bond (founder-director of Boundary Crossings), David Eckhard, Norman Klein, Marina Zurkow, and Lorelei Pepi. Read more about each artist on the PNCA website.
