Ghosts of Space


Animated films by artists from Portugal. Projects were created in classes taught by Jeanne Stern through the University of Texas | Portugal Collaboration, including “Experimental Animation” at the University of Portugal, Porto and “Ghosts of Spaces” at the FuturePlaces festival, also in Porto. For the “Ghosts of Spaces” workshop participants were asked to choose a place and create a portrait of it over time. Artists included have a wide range of backgrounds including an architect, children’s book illustrator, scientific illustrator, professors, and students.

Come check out a short program of animation, curated by Jeanne Stern. This event is part of the New Media and Sound Summit (NMASS). NMASS is a four-day festival. Tickets are $50, and get you into all events (including this one).
