Experimental Animation

As artists, we constantly observe, question, and reflect on our surroundings. Our work displays the essence of our thoughts. We use drawing as a language to communicate in a very personal way. Sometimes a thought is manifested in a single drawing, sometimes a thought needs several moments, pages, or even minutes. Animation enables us to transfer drawings into a time-based context and to create artificial objects and stages. Speech, sound, and music add further narrative levels.

Students learn to understand the potential of time-based media by being introduced to analog and computer-generated animation. They explore new forms of dialogue between analog and digital technologies and discuss the integration of animation in two and three-dimensional staging.
