Conference: animated conversations created live by Javier Mariscal

On 2 November renowned Spanish designer and artist Javier Mariscal will be performing at the BFI Southbank in London. By creating and controlling animation film footage in real time, Mariscal has devised his ‘Conference’ which is the spontaneous and instantaneous application of his creative thinking onto the silver screen. In this energetic live performance Mariscal manifests the images, voices, narrative and content that transport his characters, the Garriris, from the universe of his imagination onto the screen.

Javier Mariscal is probably best known for the creation of the adaptable and versatile mascot for the 1992 Barcelona Olympics, as well as iconic designs for company identities, interiors and products. His first UK retrospective at the Design Museum ‘Mariscal Drawing Life‘ runs until 1 November. Catch the exhibition and then see this stunning event finale brought to you in partnership with the BFI and the Design Museum.

Thanks to the BFI we have a pair of tickets for each of the events happening on 2 November. To win a pair of tickets to see Javier Mariscal on 2 November, send us your answer to the following question: what is the name of the Olympics mascot that Javier Mariscal designed? To be in with a chance to win, email your answer to engine@animateprojects.org by 30 October and tell us which event you would prefer to attend.
