Tune into a podcast from “PNCA Radio”:http://homeroom.pnca.edu/inline/604026.mp3 featuring faculty members Rose Bond and Modou Dieng discussing the emerging field of hybrid moving images. On the heels of debuting new work in England, Rose Bond is working on a new BFA Program in Contemporary Animated Arts for PNCA.
In response to the growing interest in frame-based artwork that stretches the concept of animation, Bond is currently working with PNCA on the development of a new BFA program in Contemporary Animated Arts, anticipated for fall 2010. This interdisciplinary program will be the first of its kind in the United States and will provide a platform for students to expand the boundaries of moving image work.
“Animation has long existed outside the codes and conventions of the studio cartoon, traversing the terrain of space, time, and form,” said Bond. “The curriculum being developed for PNCA’s Contemporary Animated Arts program offers a framework for students to re-imagine and create frame-based work that is supported and enriched by research and innovation.” An article in PNCA’s online magazine “Untitled”:http://untitled.pnca.edu/articles/show/656/ features Bond’s recent work for the 2010 Animated Exeter Festival.
