Pacific Northwest College of Art's Intermedia department is currently accepting applications for Boundary Crossings: An Institute in Animated Arts.

The two-week institute, July 13-24, will explore the emerging field of animated arts through a combination of theory and practice sessions, lectures, and screenings led by internationally renowned scholars and current practitioners in the animated arts field.

Animation has long existed outside the codes and conventions of the studio cartoon, freely exploring the terrain of space, time, and form. With the advent of digital technologies, the appearance of hybrid moving images has emerged as the norm, affecting boundaries between live action, animation, image processing, and compositing as porous as the platforms of display that host them. Through re-defining animation and the manipulated image, animated art forms are being pushed beyond the movies to permeate our cultural landscape.

Application is open to practitioners working in the field, scholars, and upper division graduate students. Participants can select from three strands for a two-week course of study, including classes on hybrid media, narrative structure, installation, and animation aesthetics. Boundary Crossings will provide an intensive immersion in interdisciplinary explorations, designed to prompt critical and creative outcomes at the leading edge of contemporary animated arts and scholarship.


Rolling admissions through May. To apply, visit www.pnca.edu/programs/ce/boundarycrossing.
