Greatmore Studios invites applications from artists who would like to participate in an Animation Workshop facilitated by Lonwabo Kilani from 16 – 27 March 2015 with an exhibition of works on Saturday 28 March.
One medium that encompass a merger of most traditional free hand mediums (drawing, collage, sculpting, etc.) with the most sophisticated technology (camera and computer software) is 2D/Cut-out and Stop Motion animation. It is this merger of the traditional and the new that largely defines the notion of new media. Even more so, importantly is the conceptualization of the process as part of the final artwork – a form of aesthetic conceptualization. With this workshop, the idea is to spend two weeks with no more than 6 artists interested in animation as a medium of expression. The two weeks will be spent discussing, conceptualizing, experimenting (with tools and medium) as well as practical application of both the traditional elements and the technological for a final exhibition.
Each day will be made up of 6 hours with an hour as a lunch break. Each day starts at 09h30 and ends at 15h30 with a lunch break at 12h00 to13h00. Applicants need to be available for all days including Saturday 21 March for the workshop.
