Animation Project (2011-2015) is a collaborative, practice-based, post-humanist research project that shares the curiously animating properties of objects and their impact on human bodies. Asking what kinds of motors set events in motion, how they can be sustained and sustain us, and how the process might reveal new modes of thinking while doing, the project draws on curiously focused attention, hidden energetic properties of bodies and things, and sublime humor through installations, performances, and workshops.
