Plasticity of Wonder

Creature of Armands Freibergs

Animated 3D is not a shiny puff of figurative wonder–its form and language is deeply rooted in the physical world. The three-channel video installation Plasticity of Wonder employs artisanal and industrial metaphors to depict a fictional production of well-known 3D animated characters. With this work, Armands Freibergs argues that 3D artists conform to the Arts and Crafts’ definition of crafts people–they are dedicated individuals applying their skills by hand with the computer mouse and keyboard, rather than a chisel or potter’s wheel.
