Emily Carr, in partnership with InTransit BC’s Canada Line Public Art Program, has just completed round two of a project in which student animation was created and shown on video display terminals in all the Canada Line stations for the month of February, 2012.
Many Worlds, led by Associate Professor Martin Rose, was produced by students in Emily Carr’s third year Experimental Animation class. The joint project will see one new clip featured each week over the course of four weeks. The 10-second thematically related films will be shown every two minutes in each station along the line. Animations range from paint-on-glass, 3D puppets, 2D cut-outs, digitally drawn methods and stop-motion with masking tape.
Contributing artists include: Tor Aunet, Nick Byrne, Rockey Chen, Jennifer Chiang, Brian Iankovs, Emily Kao, Clare Kim, Janice Lan, Omar Linares, Rose Luo, Sara MacGillivray, Karla Monterrosa, Laura Nisbet, David O’Brien, Emilie Os-Schmitt, Lou Papa, Judy Park, Devin Rosychuk, Cody Shaw and Jay Shaw.
