Sebastian Buerkner, Identity Slice

tank.tv  is currently showing a selection of Sebastian Buerkner’s animations. Although they flirt with 1970s references – evoking airbrushing and lava lamps – Sebastian’s films are the product of digital techniques, painstakingly assembled layer by layer in Flash. In works like Identity Slice (2007) and Frame Erasure (2007) flickers, fragments and glimpses repeat to form hypnotic loops while in Grey II (2008) amorphous shapes emerge, resolve temporarily into figures and disperse. Glance (2005)  and Grey (2008), meanwhile, are torrents of strobing, candy-coloured faces and bodies.

Sebastian has worked extensively with Animate Projects in the past – a few of the films tank are showing were made for us, in fact – and over at APEngine’s sister site animateprojects.org you can watch more of his films, plus interviews about his work and his methods. He’ll have pride of place on tank.tv’s front page until October 13th.
