I will be fighting the corner for the machines in this at battle at Flip Animation Festival.
The Machine will be using Quartz Composer, Processing and Pure Data.
Wolverhampton’s independently animated secret, FLIP Festival was conceived in 2004 under a Light House project for creatives called PLOT when it identified a need to support the region’s burgeoning animation industry by providing a forum for showcase and discussion on the wonderfully colourful topic of animation.
FLIP is now a firm fixture on the international animation calendar, and receives over 150 entries from over 30 different countries to the open shorts competition each year.
Here’s a bit about what is planned for 2102; mass participation gif-making for a temporary street art to be projected onto a landmark building in the city, an experimental collaboration between developers, animators and artists. We will also hijack a few vacant shops and screen some excellent works with free exhibitions of 2D artwork.
The weekend will culminate in an art-battle party The People versus the Machines (just like it says; live illustration artists will battle against computer generation artists) and at Light House throughout the weekend there will be screenings of the packed full and glorious programme of indie animated shorts and special guest masterclasses.
THE PEOPLE VERSUS THE MACHINE
Flip Animation Festival
9.30PM – LATE @ Fixxion Warehouse Project
Inclusive For Festival Ticket Holders / £6 all others
Join us for the closing party for FLIP 2012 which will see digital artists and illustration artists battle at Fixxion Warehouse Project in Wolverhampton
for an eclectic night of digitally-inspired visual art, set to a backdrop of electronic music. Artwork will be created as a response to the future of the relationship between humans and computers. Will human and machine fuse to form a race of superhuman cyborgs or will we be crushed under the weight of a robot uprising, whilst having a dance? The night will feature artwork from a range of local and nationally known artists, and music influenced by the interchange of visual elements from Silhouettes and a special guest DJ.
