Datos del proyecto / dados do projeto

My name is Allison Moore and I would like to be considered for Interacciones urbano_rural to make a project in Brazil at Terra Una.

I am an artist developing projects at the intersection of art and technology. I make video, performance and drawing. I have evolved my art practice through participation in residencies, workshops, exhibitions and festivals internationally. I have developed new projects in video, animation and interactive computing as an invited artist at Oboro New Media Labs, the Society of Arts and Technology, and Studio XX in Montreal. I am a member at Graff Print Studios in Montreal creating work in print media. And a member of the International Puppetry Association focussed on integrating my animated video work with live shadow puppetry for performances. My projects are socially and politically conscience. My main concern is to include a level of absurdity, humor and surrealism in an attempt to connect the natural, truisms in life to the uncanny, the supernatural and the mystic. My directive is alternative storytelling, and cultural observation.

Propuesta de taller o actividad con la comunidad / Proposta de oficina ou atividade para a comunidade

At Terra Una, I would like to make a short video work using experimental documentary and animation practices, stimulated by discoveries I make in the local geography. I want to experiment animating using watercolor paints with stop-motion cut out stencils, and also blending animation techniques with live-action pixilation of people wearing costumes. The strength in a residency opportunity lies in creating an avenue for cultural exchange. I am happy to offer artist talks and workshops on my methods during my stay. I will gain a great deal from your program in addition to contributing to the community of artists present. Thank you for your consideration.
