Sample text

Using antiquated televisions and outmoded graphics as an image of ‘modernity gone wrong’, Ulbrich points out the complicity of arts cultures and mass media in reinforcing and ‘en-culturing’ a particular status quo, privileging those in power. (2) Ulbrich’s abstraction of the key issues is unashamedly committed to making the viewer think about the work and not become complicit in an explicit or too easily accessible narrative. This, of course, is creative risk. ’ Most of the animators and artists participating in this discussion see their work in a spirit that foregrounds art as an important presence in its own right, offering insight and revelation about material culture and alternative perspectives about the human condition.

Equally, as a generally replicable and distributable mass medium or form, animation has largely been deemed undesirable by an art world immured in a very different commercial model. This seeming innocuousness is very useful, and the acceptance of it as a distinctive characteristic of the form by art culture, or immersion of it within the art world and its commercial markets, is distinctly undesirable. This is especially so if animation is to be further groomed and maintained as a highly effective and (very interestingly) trustworthy medium for the delivery of corporate directives.

I was also interested in the juncture between the organic and the mechanical, which I wanted to represent in my film. I wanted to draw something uncanny and create scenery that was dreamlike in Mirage, because I did not want to mimic the real world. ’ Mirage boasts a high degree of technical skill in its execution of 3D computer animation, creating a futuristic boy-figure – part skeleton, part robot, part flesh and blood.
