Angela Stempel on Picturing Worlds: abstraction, rhythm and “reality” in animated spaces.

In this presentation, Angela will present her works of experimental animation that explore abstract shapes, the dissolution of the physical form and of photographic certainty in narrative and non-narrative pieces. She’ll discuss her influences, contemporary work and how she deals with the representation of time and energy.
