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. Themes of her films have included memory, relationships, human-animal communication, the environment, and politics.

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.
