Digital video animation on blu-ray disc, 7 minute loop
Two part lot with Lenticular print
Both Katrantzou and Titchner, who met for the first time for this project, work with vivid and densely layered digital imagery. Computer animation allows their two worlds to combine in a three-dimensional space, Katrantzou’s elaborate prints becoming a scrolling landscape in which words loom, dissolve, pulse and strobe. The source for Titchner’s text, sometimes emphatic, sometimes subliminal, is a list of Olympic and Paralympic qualites: Strength, Courage, Speed, Power, Stamina, Agility, Resilience, Passion, Precision, Ambition. The unique digital animation is accompanied by a stunning, panoramic lenticular print developed from the scrolling imagery of the film. Two separate images in vivid contrasting colours merge from one to the other as the viewer moves in front of the work.
