Animal, 2010
Still from video

The resulting nine-and-a-half-minute video, comprising thousands of images, including birds, landscapes, mythical creatures, and other fantastical subjects, takes the viewer on an exhilarating journey into the process of artistic creation. Animal was completed in collaboration with cinematographer Chris Keohane and composer Roberto Lange, who created an original soundtrack for the video.

Landmarks realizes its projects by partnering with academic units and institutions throughout the university. This commission provided the first opportunity for the program to work closely with the Department of Art and Art History’s new Visual Arts Center (VAC), whose galleries will be inaugurated September 23–26, 2010. The premiere of Animal will coincide with the opening celebrations.
