I am happy to announce that “WE” will be included in the Animation & GIF exhibition during the F.I.L.E – Electronic Language International Festival 2019 – www.file.org.br

Country: USA

Work’s name:  “ WE”

Year of creation: October 2018

Short abstract about the work: “WE”, is an animated video art work / GIF.
Statement – “We” Our ART550 class of fourteen people came together to create the project we call “We”. That is what is important. That is all that matters. The separations we perceive between ourselves are artificial. We are more than just our looks and the skin on our bodies. We all share the same basic human characteristics. This concept is a worldview that is incredibly common, but this piece proposes another idea entirely. The skin is not a wall separating and ostracizing individuals, but rather a bridge, connecting pieces of a whole. When we are near each other we can feel how we permeate togetherness. We act like an ocean and each so-called self is a singular drop of a shade of color needed to cascade into the intense spectrum that is We. We, as work of digital art represents the preservation of our class energy throughout time and the way we view our experience as a whole. Through technology and art we are preserving ourselves in unity and our interconnectivity forever.

Short bio: “WE” is a collaborative animation project created specifically for the F.I.L.E festival by the ART550 MFA/MA Graduate students and professor of LIU Post (Long Island University, Post Campus) in New York.

Many thanks and Congrats to everyone involved!
