Celebrate International Day of Disabilities with Art
Dec 02, 2010
On December 3, 2010, join VSA, the International Organization on Arts and Disabilities for a special screening of Motion Disabled by artist Simon Mckeown, to celebrate the International Day of Persons with Disabilities. The groundbreaking video installation Motion Disabled was created to raise awareness of disability rights. Mckeown uses motion capture, a technique used in feature films and video games, and 3D animation to explore digitally the movements of 15 people with disabilities performing activities from kickboxing to riding a bicycle. This mesmerizing installation challenges conventional ideas of motion.
This screening will be available online and in select locations.
