High Light/Low Light features new work by MFA students in the John C. Hench Division of Animation & Digital Arts. The installations and videos were created for the Fall 2009 “Contemporary Topics in Animation” class taught by Hench-DADA adjunct faculty Larissa Bank.

The work on display in High Light/Low Light stresses animation as a fertile terrain for experimentation. The screening location and tactics are dependent upon the content. The gallery space and installation genre replaces the traditional theater format for presentation. The intent is to explore alternative ways to make animated films visible, to communicate with a different (art-going) public, and to encourage audience discussion and interaction in ways that the theater model does not foster.
