Connected Moments – Performing Cycles
How do you see the world? What do you choose to focus on? What do you filter out? How do your views shape your sense of self? As animators and artists interested in the moving image, we are often drawn to the kinetics of things, details that move, how they change, and even seeing sequence in the static. Ours is an imagined world of connected moments unfolding in time to reveal meaning. The theme of this summers Boundary Crossings Connected Moments – Performing Cycles, invites participants to interact with a place its motion and its stasis and create animated works of sculpture, installation and/or performance that represents a particular view of the world.
Advantaging a range of animation methods from pre-cinematic to the digital, the 2019 Boundary Crossings intensive culminates in a public showcase of work created over the two-week institute. This summer, participants will be encouraged to collect their observations in and around Portland. Building on methods and concepts embedded in Visiting Faculty/Artist Eric Dyer and his award winning piece Copenhagen Cycles, we will offer an optional mini-workshop that guides you on how to sequence inkjet-printedimages into sculptural collages allowing participants to spin and project their artworks much like a DJ spins records, with live music accompaniment.
Animation has long existed outside the codes and conventions of the studio cartoon, traversing the terrain of time, space and form. Now in its sixth biennial manifestation, PNCAs Boundary Crossings is a two-week intensive institute open to working professionals, scholar/practitioners, graduate and upper-level undergraduate students interested in a hands-on exploration of animated installation as a medium and a site for investigation of moving image interdisciplinary practice. Employing a range of techniques and approaches to animation, resultant works will be exhibited in a public exhibition on August 23, 2019. A basic knowledge of animation is required.

About the Faculty
ERIC DYER is an artist who brings animation into the physical world with his sequential images, sculptures, installations, and performances. Beginning with his pioneering filmsCopenhagen Cycles(2006) andThe Bellows March(2009), which were made by shooting spinning cut-paper and 3D-printed sculptures, Dyer continues to reinvent Victorian Era optical devices, exploring topics related to media history, our relationship with technology, kinetics as a form of artistic expression, and the relevance of physical presence in an increasingly digital world.
Dyer’s work has been widely exhibited at events and venues such as the Smithsonian National Gallery of Art, Ars Electronica, international animation festivals in numerous countries, the screens of Times Square, and the Cairo and Venice Biennales. He has been honored as a Fulbright Fellow, Sundance New Frontier Artist, Creative Capital Artist, and Guggenheim Fellow.
His fervent exploration of expression through motion has placed his work in books such asRe-imagining Animation: the Changing Face of the Moving Image,Pervasive Animation,Animation: A World History, andA New History of Animation. He has been a visiting artist at institutions such as Carnegie Mellon University, ECNU in Shanghai, and CalArts. Dyer teaches visual arts and animation at UMBC in Baltimore and is represented by the Ronald Feldman Gallery in New York City.
