BEEF Presents: Conspirators of Perception
Thu 27 October // 20:00
A screening of animations by artist filmmaker Edwin Rostron, alongside a number of other animated films chosen by Edwin. The films all share an improvisatory approach to the creative processes in animation, using the medium to show thought in motion; ideas happening spontaneously with a free and experimental spirit. From the mysterious explorations of Douglass Crockwell's Glens Falls Sequence made between 1937 and 1946, to Gennaio, a film made this year by Ira Vicari and inspired by a walk in a public park, the selection shows the dynamic and unfettered imagination at play.
Edwin Rostron is an artist filmmaker based in London. He runs Edge of Frame, which produces writing about experimental animation, and a blog and screening series focusing on experimental animation. He has taught at the Royal College of Art and Kingston University, and has been a visiting artist at CalArts, UCA Farnham and at Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design.
