Graduate School - Chatter Exhibition in London

Chatter, an animation installation project by Birgitta Hosea, will be playing in London this July. The project includes work from myself and fellow USC graduate student from the MFA class of 2013.
The latest version of the CHATTER project will be shown at Bar Sequence for one night only on:
6 – 11 PM THURSDAY 14th JULY
@ Bar Sequence, 43 Essex Road, London, N1 2SF

This evolving installation of animated talking heads investigates meaningless blather and the babble of crowds, reminiscent of conversations on Facebook or Twitter. Created by media artist, Birgitta Hosea, it includes crowd-sourced contributions from international artists and animators*.

Birgitta was a scholar in residence at USC for the fall semester of 2010. She worked with our animation teacher Tom Sito to create an orchestra of inidividual short clips - one from each student. These short conversational elements were designed, recorded, and lip synced by individual students. The clips were exhibited in tandem at the USC Cinema Arts Gallery.
