Date: Friday 4 – Sunday 20 March 2011
Venue: The Substation Gallery
This is an InHouse event
Reception: Thursday 3 March, 7:30pm
Big Bio is a film project about a scientist bringing life to a clay child, and uses the classic stop motion animation technique.
As the term animation means “to breathe life into”, this “biotechnological Madonna” literally plays a god-like role as she creates a film which is simultaneously about the beginnings of life. Big Bio brings to mind a modern day Frankenstein, Mary Shelly’s 19th century novel. This science fiction exhibition consists of digital prints, a short film, and puppets.

Operation: Go Stop Mo
This workshop consists of a presentation and screening introducing stop motion in filmmaking, as well as hands-on practice. Animation techniques such as pixilation, clay animation, cutouts, and backlit sand or clay on glass will be covered. Participants will learn how to breathe life into the inanimate and, by the end of the workshop, will have created their very own animated short film.
