Part of Fall 1998

Direct from Braunschweig, Germany, Deborah Phillips will present a selection of experimental animation from Laboratorium, a communal artists facility. This program spans a decade of dazzling work produced by Phillips and other animators from Laboratorium. Ranging from the Surrealist playfulness of Bartles and Hansen’s Ragout (’89) to the postmodern decorative of Phillips’ 35mm musical odyssey Santoor (’98), this is an ebullient collection of animation in which “each test tube has produced an unexpected, yet positive effect, where artistic progress is the result of accidental processes.
