MEET ME HERE: CURATED BY 24 MEMES PER SECOND
No one knows experimental animation like the anonymous heroes behind the 24 Memes Per Second Instagram account. As much as we’re in awe of their endless stream of quips and commentary, it’s their obvious love of experimental animation, and their encyclopaedic knowledge of its history, that keeps us hooked on their feed. We're thrilled that they've curated a pack for us, and here's what they said about their curated pack:
Animation often lives on screens. Homes for flickering images, streams of light, and the dull hum of an electrical current. Contrasting the cold, Animation is warm. It’s inviting, tactile, and dominant. Put your hand to the monitor and let the static lick your fingers. Can you feel the frame rate? These films showcase notions of absence, transition, and an immediate presence. Imagine taking off your gloves after a day in the cold—warm, fuzzy, and slightly wet.
This program embraces films that caress the ends of the bounding box and scratch at the screen from the other side. Using a rich variety of animation techniques including CG, Puppetry, and Stop Motion, these filmmakers explore the syrupy possibilities of the form. Meet me here, I’ll be waiting once the show ends.
