Friday, December 9th ~ Animation as Artistic Practice
Moderated by: Phyllis Bulkin Lehrer, video animation artist
Animation Art is the rapid display of a sequence of images of 2D or 3D artwork or model positions in order to create an illusion of movement. The effect is an optical illusion of motion due to the phenomenon of persistence of vision, and can be created and demonstrated in several ways. The most common method of presenting animation is as a motion picture or video program, although there are other methods.
Artists working in or with animation utilize a number of different platforms and software tools to achieve their expressions in their respective practices. Some practices involve the use of algorithms, some computing, and others analogue methods such as painting on film, glass plate shooting, clay-mation, model animation or pixilation, to name but a few methods. Some methods date from film days while others are resulting from the affects and capabilities of computers and software.
Artist/panelists include: Gregory Barsamian, Holly Daggers, George Griffin, Emily Hubley and Jeff Scher , animation artists, all, will show and discuss their work.
Organized by: Doug Sheer, artist and chairman ATOA
ATOA suggested admission is $7 and $3 for seniors or students with proper ID. Reservations are not required. Both the East side subways are ‘at the door’ as are buses and street parking is possible after 6PM. Annual passes are available. See also www.atoa.org for more about ATOA. And, plan to join us for drinks nearby after the panel…another ATOA tradition. Westwood is wheelchair accessible.
The Artists Talk on Art panels will return to Friday evenings and to their ancestral home, SOHO, starting this October. A new host space, the Westwood Gallery, located at 568 Broadway at Prince Street, will see ATOA sessions Fridays at 7PM, with doors opening at 6PM and refreshments – like an opening – served before the panels. ATOA is the art world’s most prolific and longest running aesthetic panel series, having been founded in 1975. In all, ATOA has presented over 1,300 events and featured over 6,000 artists, writers and critics, many before their “fifteen minutes of fame.”
