Project Description


The experimenta.l. Animation Lab, is a new collaborative space for creative research and critical practices in animation that welcomes the participation of undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, and external collaborators. We encourage experimentation via a variety of techniques, tools, and interfaces. We introduce and invite collaborators to exchange ideas that challenge traditional understandings of animation to open discussion of alternative possibilities that will inform and challenge current practices in the field. This includes, though is not limited to, the remixing of old and new technologies and uncovering creative connections through the understanding of the applications and implications of more experimental and material processes of animation.

Faculty Advisor(s) – Christine Veras, Ph.D
