Doodlearth created by our very own Serge Seidlitz and media production studio Squint Opera is coming to onedotzero_adventures in motion this weekend.
Doodlearth is exploring the similarities in the creative process between architecture, illustration and sound. As
Doodlearth travels the world it is gradually building into an ever expanding animated global city map.
Doodlearth is a collaborative live interactive illustration / art event, that brings together people from around the world who have a passion for doodling. Audiences are invited to add their interpretation of their city and environment, to create a unique animation, so that different styles of illustration appear next to each other, reflecting the multitude of ideas, lives and architectural styles in cities.
The process begins with 20 artists illustrating elements of London, which are then animated to create a unique 40-minute film, and visitors are then invited to grab a pen and illustrate what they want to add to the city.
Come and doodle! - find Doodlearth in the foyer of BFI Southbank, 14-16 November. Free of charge, pens provided, all ages welcome!
onedotzero_adventures in motion, the world’s most innovative festival of motion arts and entertainment celebrates a new partnership with BFI Southbank, with a packed three day festival this November.
