With the advent of digital technologies, hybrid moving images have rendered the traditional boundaries between live action, animation, and image processing as porous as the platforms of image display. PNCAs biennial Boundary Crossings fosters innovative exploration of animated space, expanded screens, and cinema as a form of architecture and cultural landscape. The two-week Institute embraces the hybrid moving image by combining critical thought, fine art practice, and digital technologies.Guided by internationally renowned scholars and practitioners, Boundary Crossings offers theory and practice sessions, lecture-screenings, and hands-on making and provides an intensive immersion at the leading edge of contemporary animated arts and scholarship. Boundary Crossings culminates with a public exhibition of animated installations created during the two-week Institute. Boundary Crossings is open to moving image practitioners, studio artists, and academic scholars as well as upper-division undergraduate and graduate-level students. Prerequisite: By application.
