Animation as Artistic Practice

Jeff Scher
Milk of Amnesia
Animation Art is the rapid display of a sequence of images of 2-D or 3-D artwork or model positions in order to create an illusion of movement. The effect is an optical illusion of motion due to the phenomenon of persistence of vision, and can be created and demonstrated in several ways. The most common method of presenting animation is as a motion picture or video program, although there are other methods.

Artists working in or with animation utilize a number of different platforms and software tools to achieve their expressions in their respective practices. Some practices involve the use of algorithms, some computing, and others analogue methods such as painting on film, glass plate shooting, clay-mation, model animation or pixilation, to name but a few methods. Some methods date from film days while others are resulting from the affects and capabilities of computers and software.

However this archive is recorded on magnetic tapes which desperately need to be preserved.
