Slow, quirky and very Canberra, 'Untitled Moments' is a digital animation based on embroidery.
'Untitled Moments' is a collaborative project exploring the visual impact of embroidery, drawing and photography in a digital animation. We've used digital technologies to combine embroidered images with drawing and sound to create narrative fragments: imagined incidents drawn from our observations of Canberra's most unremarkable moments.
The resulting work does NOT attempt to mimic cartoons or conventional animations. It's a pastiche, an idiosyncratic mixture of embroidery, drawing, watercolour, photography, scanography, digital animation, field recordings and digitally generated sounds. The final effect is sometimes contemplative, sometimes deliberately cheesy.
