Animation exists as a practice that draws from a range of different artistic methods – whether using photography, drawing, illustration, sculpture – it is able to combine these with a temporal component. Change of state through time is intimately connected to the practice of animation, and thematically connected to this project as we consider sites that exist in different states through time. 


In Kosovo, a house, then a school, then a museum – In Rwanda, an orphanage, then a school, then a cultural space. Using two under-the-camera techniques we invited young people to explore this change through time as a charcoal animation of an old postcard of a place, or as a stop-motion using materials that once made up a building and now exist as a pile of rubble.
