This event has ended.

ClampArt is proud to present "Phantom Canyon" by Stacey Steers. The artist's animated film was created from over four thousand hand-made collages incorporating 18th- and 19th-century engravings and photographs from Eadweard Muybridge's "Human and Animal Locomotion," first published in 1887. Steers' working process is meticulous and labor intensive. With typically eight hand-painted drawings or collages for every second of animation, the artist's films take years to complete. The collages were photographed individually on an old Oxberry animation stand onto 35mm film stock with texture layers added using transparencies.
"Phantom Canyon" is a metaphorical circumnavigation of a defining personal experience, and a meditation on the process by which human beings construct meaning from their experience. A curious woman meets an alluring man with bat wings in this surrealistic recollection of a pivotal lifetime event.
