Animation is an increasingly vibrant medium for artists, and enlivens a virtual platform. In Unstilled Life, Tintype in collaboration with Ron Mandos Gallery, Amsterdam and blinkvideo in Hamburg, presents 13 films in a space that is activated, immediate and intimate – into people’s phones, screens and living rooms – even at a time of distancing. More fundamentally, digitalisation, post-production and simulation have thoroughly undermined the indexical relationship of film to its origin in time, as a succession of moments preserved. Animation might be seen as more honest. There’s no disguising its source in imagination. Artists can create worlds which stem not from representation, but from freely extending their particular languages and concerns.
