Boundary Crossings: Animated Arts
Performing Identity through Animated Documentary
Is the personal political? How can we truly experience another persons reality? In our world of multiple identities, how can we use animation to present the world through anothers eyes? Can poetic, subjective forms of representation allow us to understand anothers experiences and perspectives? Do we need characters for this? Do we need language at all?
Building on Bill Nichols idea of performative documentary in which the filmmaker presents their own, highly subjective viewpoint, we will explore auto-ethnographic methods to weave actions, memories, drawings and personal ephemera into short-form animation.
Boundary Crossings is a biennial Institute in Animated Arts that draws artists and designers working in a broad range of disciplines and professions from across the U.S. and from abroad.
