"It is ironical, how sometimes we take things for granted and when they happen to be completely different from our understanding we cannot believe in our own ignorance. It’s a repetitive mistake we are not even conscious of until somebody or something makes us realise it.
I have moved to Breda almost a year ago to pursue master studies in animation. After years of thinking of animation only in terms of VFX and 3D I wanted to learn the other, less familiar side of animation. Yet, everything that I assumed about that unexplored territory was still connected to the screen, be it in cinema or at home. Even though, in the past years, I have visited a few of art&technology oriented festivals, Retune, Transmediale, Discovery etc. I have never made a connection to animation. In my experience, the visitors and lecturers always talked about it as of visuals, digital images, clips. It took me some time to understand that animation is just another medium, that can go with whatever we imagine, if it’s an installation, VR experience, projection and so on. When I first came to AKV | St.Joost I though I would continue to work on movies, commercials etc., the idea of working on interactive installation and get engaged in experimental scene was the biggest revelation of my whole animation studies. Once I was introduced to the disciplines of creative programming and interactivity I felt a huge surge of creativity, I believe everyone can identify with."
