For those that ride the TTC, next week a new animation that Adeyemi Adegbesan and myself put together down at the Leslie Spit will be screened on subway platforms. Our piece is called the Rat Race:
Bricks and Cinder Block come alive down at Toronto’s Leslie Spit in this 1-minute animation by Adeyemi Adegbesan and Michael Brown. This discarded material of demolished Toronto buildings takes on a range of personalities. Scurrying out from behind big boulders and clambering up and over slabs of cement sub-flooring, the material orders itself and encounters a little magic, looking east out over Lake Ontario.
Thanks for the support from the Toronto Animated Image Society who put together the project and to Madi Piller and Tara Schorr from TAIS who mentored and inspired the 6 artist teams over the summer. The project was a lot of fun!
