IANIM 2500 Experimental Motion Media

Experimental Motion Media introduces majors and non-animation students to the cornucopia of animation techniques available to impart the dimension of motion to their artwork. Animation here is a means of creating paintings that move, or music that is purely visual. There is a long history of using animation to produce fine art or experimental film. The animated works of Dada artists like Hans Richter, Viking Eggling, and Walter Ruttman; and the works of modernists like Oscar Fischinger, Len Lye, Robert Breer, Paul Glabiki, as well as contemporary animators are viewed.
