1. Slices in Time is a strata stencil animated loop and installation made for the ASIFAKEIL gallery space in Vienna.

    Tess Martin is an animator who is inspired by materials, and has made films in sand, cut-outs, paint, ink and markers. She enjoys letting the audience in on how the films were made, and therefore the process of creation is often evident in her work.

    For this installation she has created a diorama which evokes the various layers often present in animation – layers of time, comprised by at least twelve images per second; layers of artwork, often animated on different sheets of glass on a multiplane, or layers of movement, expressed one frame at a time.

    The installation is complemented by her presentation on March 1 as part of the Animation Symposium "under-the-radar" at Raum D / quartier21, where you will get a chance to see some of her diverse films.

  2. The short film "The Me Bird" is a free interpretation of the homonym poem by Pablo Neruda. The inspiration in the strata stencil technique helps conceptualize the repetition of layers as the past of our movements and actions. The frames depicted as jail and the past as a burden serve as the background for the story of a ballerina on a journey towards freedom. A diversified artistic experimentation recreates the tempest that connects bird and dancer.

    I am the Pablo Bird,
    bird of a single feather,
    a flier in the clear shadow
    and obscure clarity,
    my wings are unseen,
    my ears resound
    when I walk among the trees
    or beneath the tombstones
    like an unlucky umbrella
    or a naked sword,
    stretched like a bow
    or round like a grape,
    I fly on and on not knowing,
    wounded in the dark night,
    who is waiting for me,
    who does not want my song,
    who desires my death,
    who will not know I'm arriving
    and will not come to subdue me,
    to bleed me, to twist me,
    or to kiss my clothes,
    torn by the shrieking wind.
    That's why I come and go,
    fly and don't fly but sing:
    I am the furious bird
    of the calm storm.
    – Pablo Neruda
