[ISEA2009] Artist Talk: Eric Dyer – Bellows: bringing digital animation into the physical world

Artist Statement

Bellows is an art installation and cinema project that uses a new animation process. I have combined the concept of the zoetrope, a pre-cinema optical toy, with rapidprototype 3D printing and fast-shutter digital video to tell a story suggesting the destructive and expressive potential of humans. In Bellows, anthropomorphized concertinas take the place of people. Concertinas serve as the metaphor for humans because both breathe and both have great expressive potential.
