STASH: Matter. Shape. Space.
Animation has always had a subversive "mission": to question the material world. To re-construct it, make it illogical. Rethink the space-time coordinate system.
In the video works in this program, we see the culmination of the assumption from the opening sentence. Although the objects we observe are known to us from the so-called real world, they transform in surprising ways; their protean forms and variable volumes are almost on the border of the sci-fi universe, as if bioforms are emerging before our eyes. The movement is amoeboid, sometimes like a stream of water, or becoming randomised (cracking, tearing, breaking). Can matter become instinctive, intuitive? Therefore unpredictable? It is what we find the easiest to believe in the space we observe: It has become metaphorical.
THE STASH PERMANENT COLLECTION, a carefully curated video streaming platform for motion design and animation, was once again a source of endless inspiration for the creation of this programme.
