EAI presented a screening and talk with artist Martha Colburn. Over the last two decades, Colburn has created a constellation of intricate, politically charged animated worlds on film, using rigorous stop-motion animation, armies of found images and objects, and copious amounts of paint, glass, and tape. At EAI, Colburn screened and spoke about a selection of recent films that explore war, conquest, faith, and history—taking in America's recent military experiences in the Middle East along the way—as well as early and rarely seen found-film and animation experiments, music video projects, and a 2011 animated PSA on fracture mining (fracking) in New York State.
