• Involuntary Animation

Hosea, Birgitta, 2015, Conference or Workshop, Involuntary Animation at Beyond the Frame: Society for Animation Studies 27th Annual Conference, Canterbury Christ Church University, 13-16th July, 2015.

Abstract or Description:

As part of her long-standing interest in animation as the trace of an animator’s bodily presence, Birgitta Hosea will present her research into involuntary physical activity and mark-making. She will examine the phenomena of Victorian hysterics and spiritualists, in which the body is animated by unconscious forces, as well as projects by Surrealist and Fluxus artists, in which unconscious movement results in mark making. She will then show some of her recent time-based media projects in site-specific installation and live art that encompass elements of involuntary animation and seek to explore the concept of the animator as a performer.
