As you'll be aware, the CAA/MASK collaborative project has been motoring along since January, and the exhibition of the finished animations has its private view on Monday 14th March 5pm - 7pm. You're all invited to attend (there's free wine!) so pop up to the Gallery after class and have a glass on us!
11 March – 22 April 2016
Zandra Rhodes Gallery, University for the Creative Arts, Rochester, Kent
For this project, a series of graduates from the BA in Computer Animaton Arts (Rochester) haven been invited to respond to the winning artworks of the MASK Prize, a creative competiition for schools and young people under the age of 25 in Kenya. Each animator has worked with one selected artwork and produced a short animation based on it. This initiative constitutes a unique creative exchange between young artists in Kenya and recently graduated animators in the UK.
In order to allow communication between practitioners in the two countries, the following blog has been set up. This tool facilitates exchange between the original creators of the artworks and the animators working with them now, and it will also function as a record of the creative process behind each animation. Extracts of the on-going conversations will also be on view at the gallery.
