“Space is a social product.” –Henri Lefebvre

If indeed space is a social product, then we, as social beings, create space by bringing meaning to and mining meaning in place. Space is a product of overlapping moments and histories, while these moments and histories are shaped by architecture and landscape which influence the ways we move through or linger in public spaces.

Space can be a concrete representation of power and cultural divide or, as the Boundary Crossings institute proposes, a starting point, inspiring reflection on issues of individual notions of place and community.

Space and time are at the heart of animation. With the proliferation of digital technologies, animation expands beyond the 2-D screen and increasingly impacts public spaces and events in malls, bars, galleries, and venues for live performance. Through a two-week intensive workshop, Boundary Crossings provides a platform for artists to develop animated works that embrace diverse traditions as well as new forms and current issues.

Join us for an unique evening, discovering animated installation as a medium and a site for investigation of moving image interdisciplinary practice.

PEDRO SERRANZINA (1968) is an animation director and lecturer. He is currently undertaking a practice-based PhD at Univ. Lusofona de Lisboa on “The Creation and Use of Animated Space in Animation.” As a practitioner he is currently finishing a site-specific sand animation installation for the Museum of Jewish Culture in the North of Portugal (due to open in September 2015), and has a s­­­hort animation film, “The Memory House”, in pre-production.
