Synopsis


A play of geometrical forms, patterns, rhythms and sounds. Quimtaiis an abstract animation based upon pre-Columbian patterns of the now extinct Tairona and Quimbaya indigenous cultures of Colombia and was inspired by the German absolute film of the 1920s. Animation was laser engraved directly onto 35mm Black Lead film. It was developed from an ongoing research work on direct animation in which technical experimentation to alter the celluloid was central.
