A LETTER TO MY PROJECT
All are welcome to this inaugural seminar by the Lines : Design(ing) Stories research group
4-5pm, Seminar Room 2.13, Evolution House
Alys’ works with animated documentary, uses drawing to explore the world and to hunt out difficult and unusual stories. Her short films have been screened at international film festivals and won several awards. She made a prime time short for Channel 4, and has worked as artist-inresidence at the MuseumsQuartier in Vienna and the National Media Museum in Bradford. Recent exhibitions include Parasol Unit and Peacock Arts, both in London. Alys teaches on the BA & MA Animation Production courses at Arts University Bournemouth, and co-curates the blog Animated Documentary.com
Her paper ‘A Letter to my Project’ describes some of the challenges of the Bedford Place Map, a recent participatory project. Asking questions directly addressed to the project open up discussion about the relationships we all have with our work and what we learn from things which do not turn out as planned.
This seminar is the first in a series of planned events by the Lines : Design(ing) Stories Research group. Please contact us if you are interested in exploring the stories developed in and through visual and material culture
