Non Stop Stop Motion
Artistic Research PhD project
Anna Vasof 2020
Supervisor Judith Eisler

Non Stop Stop Motion is a series of experiments that took place from 2014 till 2020 and investigate where we can find the essence of cinematic illusion when we look at everyday life and what happens when we use everyday situations, objects, actions and spaces as cinematographic mechanisms.

Non Stop Stop Motion
Film and Exhibition

Anna Vasof unfolds in 14 film chapters – from Misunderstanding to Everything is an Excuse– her attempts and her failures to understand the mechanics of motion and cinematography and her desires to find new ways of storytelling. During the exhibition the visitors can also see and activate the self-invented cinematographic mechanisms that she constructed during the research.

Exhibition Duration: 27 – 29 October from 11:00 to 18:00
at Zentrum Fokus Forschung, Rustenschacherallee 2–4, 1020 Vienna

Public Defensio: 29 October at 13:00
