Shape of a moving idea

Frame by frame, 2D, animation. 03:46 min, 2018 
(1700 drawings)

Art is the core topic of the animation. Its inexhaustible and unfixable meanings are investigated through visual suggestions and interviews which try to unfold, at least partially, the artistic practice. Having some questions in mind (as how do we make art today? Which are the contexts in which it's blooming? Is everything art?Etc.), the goal of the animation is not to give an univocal and absolute answer, but rather to compare and mix ideas of artists and thinkers coming from different parts of the world. To let further emerge a multitude of approaches and points of view, an attempt for a collective voice.
