Choreographing time: animation without a screen

Last night I was really impressed by Choreographing time: animation without a screen, a presentation of the Diasynchronoscope project by Trope at Goldsmith’s Thursday club at the Centre for Recent Collaboration.

Carol MacGillivray and Bruno Mathez, who collaborate together as Trope, showed their amazing screen-less animation and explained how it had emerged from experiments with perception, animation, physical computing, digital composition, sculpture and sleight of hand. I had previously seen their work Gaffer at Tenderpixel Gallery in which objects literally seemed to fly around the room.

As the work is site specific and relies on clever optical illusions it is almost impossible to photograph, but here is a video of their work.
