Welcome to the third installment of Stop & Go, a screening series in which established filmmakers and visual artists unveil their most recent experiments in stop-motion animation. This collection of short videos plays dramatically with our visual senses as images recede and jump out of the screen. By making use of anaglyphic techniques, strobe effects, composite layering, overlapping cross-fades, afterimages and optical imagery, each artist pushes the boundary of what the multi-dimensional can be. Some of the pieces require red/cyan glasses to fully appreciate the work while others are best viewed in plain sight or by softening one’s gaze. As a whole the show offers you much more then what meets the eye. –Sarah Klein, Curator
$5-$10 suggested admission for this traveling one night screening. IMPORTANT NOTE: this show features flickering lights and strobe effects that may cause headaches, nausea, seizures, and other unpleasant effects in some people.
