SAT September 5, 2015, 12 noon-6:00 PM

Expanded Animation has become an extremely popular feature on the Ars Electronica Animation Festival lineup and a mainstay of the Ars Electronica Festival as a whole! It’s an intensive encounter with ongoing technical and aesthetic developments in the digital animation genre. In particular, the program focuses on what’s happening beyond the mainstream: fascinating anomalies and deviations.

Prix Forum I – Computer Animation / Film / VFX

That applies in no small measure to the lineup at Prix Forum I – Computer Animation / Film / VFX: the Prix Ars Electronica prizewinners in that category. This is the first time that this Forum is being staged in conjunction with Expanded Animation. The diverse international community of artists, pioneers, curators, academicians and students in attendance guarantees a fascinating discussion that’s bound to range far beyond the boundaries of this artistic genre.

“The field of synthetic image production is huge, and on the periphery there are spinoffs in lots of directions, which means you tend to lose sight of all the areas in which animation and digital image production come into use. Our aim is simply to bring all these things together to show students all the potential that’s out there and the many fields they can work in.” Read more on the Ars Electronica Blog!
