Clip of the Week
"Carrier" (2011) by Sharon Louden

Watch "Carrier" (2011) by Sharon Louden! "Carrier" is an animation that is about traveling through an abstract, gestural world into a natural world, and then back to the world of abstraction into infinity. By traveling through this world, Carrier attempts to challenge the viewer’s sense of proportion and implies the role of a messenger, a follower, or the viewer as the gesture itself.

"Carrier" was featured recently at the National Gallery of Art's screening "Ciné-Concert: Art in Motion!," a celebration of historical and contemporary abstract animation that included works from iotaCenter's collection.
