DISPLAY: The first in a new series of animated films and artist books by filmmaker Simon Pummell. The work combines digital animation processes with traditional figure drawing to create a new atlas of the human figure.

Every volume of the Atlas exists both as a series of digital animations and also as a unique, hand-crafted book of the watercolours used to create the moving images. Traditionally our anatomies were associated with the flayed and dissected corpse, and so with death. In a world of hospital x-rays, medical scans and routine airport scanning we have become transparent: living and moving anatomies.

This research project was initiated with a Harvard Film Study Center Fellowship and is supported
by the Piet Zwart Lectorate Research Centre.
