Artist Statement

Other Realities sub-programme

Animated Truth – Niran is the beginning of a series of Polaroids that tell only half the truth. The Polaroid is a traditional format of documentary, whilst animation is considered far removed from documentary. However, in this piece the animation will inform the truth by giving life to the experienced truth that cannot be captured with Polaroid film. The piece is a standalone piece that demonstrates how a story of trauma that defines a person can be told with more meaning using the experiential world – the other world – created by animation.

  • Kimara Moodley (South Africa) is a Digital Artist who enjoys working with animation in documentary format. She is currently studying her Master’s Degree in Digital Arts through the University of KwaZulu-Natal and working as a full-time Website Designer and Graphic Designer.
