Our Outdoor Screen in the Plaza presents a unique, specialised program that celebrates artists, filmmakers, animators, sporting heroes and our community. Learn more about the content we show directly from the minds of the curators. This week we hear from Uyen Nguyen about her curated piece titled, Moments.

Moments curated by Uyen Nguyen 

Animated vignettes capture brief moments, fragments and snapshots of characters, scenarios, emotions, places and the relationships between them. Although with little or no complete plot, narrative or story these animations convey a multitude of meanings - from deeply revelatory commentary to amusing and charming anecdotes. Eschewing conventional linear storytelling techniques that are commonly used to advance detailed narratives, these animations from the Master of Animation, Games and Interactivity at RMIT University instead play with experimental stylistic and conceptual approaches to convey evocative impressions and perceptions. Some of these animations interpret slices of the everyday in different ways, while others reveal surreal and whimsical moments that reimagine the familiar. Despite their brevity, all these snippets and scenes suggest wider worlds and imaginative new contexts and understandings through the interpretive power of animation.
