Wassaic Project Festival is hosting an animation program curated by animator Joshua Frankel. The films in this program explore the concept of collage in motion pictures through juxtapositions, both stark and subtle, of media, aesthetic and authorship. The media incorporated into the films in the program include handmade marks, handmade objects, found objects, photographs, stylized computer generated imagery and live action footage. The act of collage reminds the viewer that motion picture is an object crafted by an artist or team of artists. These films feature the fingerprints of their creators prominently.
The Festival also features an exhibition of work by over 100 visual artists, which will include Frankel's recent film PLAN OF THE CITY, as well as a series of silkscreen prints based on imagery from the film.
