Uncanny Valley
Anja Kirschner and David Panos, 2013
10 mins, Format: HD / 16:9

Moving between the process of motion capturing minute facial expressions to create ‘realistic’ animated characters, and the construction of epic scenes featuring large crowds, Uncanny Valley examines the contemporary s(t)imulation, redistribution and interpenetration of affects and affective economies on an individual and mass scale.
