• Siting Animation: the Affect of Place

Hosea, Birgitta, 2017, Book Section, Siting Animation: the Affect of Place In: Experimental and Expanded Animation. Palgrave MacMillan. ISBN TBC (Unpublished)

Abstract or Description:

Conventionally, the primary viewing context for animation involves the viewer being seated in a fixed position that she stays in for the duration of the viewing experience without significant change in her angle of view of the images on the screen before her. This chapter considers non-narrative animation that has been created to be part of an expanded or site-specific experience in which the viewer must visit a particular location and walk around to experience the work. How does the viewing experience of animation differ if the work is installed in three-dimensional space as part of an art exhibition, museum display or visitor attraction rather than from a fixed seating position? Through reference to examples of works by artists, such as Rose Bond, Pedro Serrazina, Georgia Wen and Birgitta Hosea, in which contemporary animations are displayed as an intervention in historic spaces, as well as to phenomenological film theory and mobilities geography, the affect of site and the impact of the communal viewing context on the embodied perception of an animation will be investigated.
