In celebration of our summer exhibition, The Art of Tinkering, we present an array of animated and kinetic short films exploring the inventive ways that amateurs, artists, and tinkerers manipulate the moving image in surprising and/or captivating ways.

Dot by Sumo Science (2010, 2 min.) 
Using everyday objects to create a story of suspenseful adventure, the protagonist’s world is created anew through human and technological creativity.

Come Ons by Joe Sola (2002, 2 min.)
A simple film that cleverly employs cunning edits to several Hollywood films to heighten suspense!

Fast Film by Virgil Wildrich (2003, 14 min.)
An animated homage to motion pictures that includes complex handmade elements to create a hybrid adventure/love story.

From Saturday to Sunday by Christian Bruno and Natalija Vekic (2008, 5 min.)
This visually poetic film is a playful capture of two young people each creating a singular film merged together into a unique call and response.
