Artist Talk: Mack McFarland and Marieke Verbiesen

Mack McFarland, the curator of the Intermation, will talk with Marieke Verbiesen about her work in the show.

Intermation examines the relationship between the animated image and the screen and proposes new utility between or among the traditional apparatus of animation. The exhibition reinforces the interdisciplinary nature of Boundary Crossings: an Institute in Contemporary Animated Arts.

Verbiesen will discuss her work Plan 10, an interactive installation that users control through a self made control board simulating events in a miniature, tactile city. Plan 10 is based on the book Last City of the Gods by Norwegian Science Fiction novelist Tor Age Bringsvaerd.
