On May 7, 8PM, IS-projects will host Sarah Klein's Stop & GO 3-D program.

The San Francisco Bay Area conceived stop-motion animation festival will travel to the Netherlands, Germany and Croatia for the world premiere of  Stop & Go 3-D. The Stop & Go program was developed in 2008 and showcases animations that use stop-motion techniques to explore visual language, tell stories and make social commentaries.

Stop & Go 3-D features a new series of stop-motion animations by 27 contemporary visual artists and filmmakers from around the world.  The program dramatically plays with our visual senses through the artist’s use of stobing effects, afterimages, anaglyphic experiments, optical elements and three- dimensional spoofs. The animations in this program were chosen from a world- wide open call for submissions and by invitation. Five of the animations in the program require the audience to wear red/cyan-colored glasses to fully engage with the work.

Stop & Go 3-D includes work by Abbey Luck & Sean Donnelly (Brooklyn, York, US), Albert Roskam (Leiden, NL), Bendik Kaltenborn (Oslo, NO) & Kalle Johansson (Stockholm, SE), Brian McClave (London, UK), Claudia Molitor (London, UK) & Gavin Peacock (Brighton, UK), David Daniels (Portland, OR. US), Erik van Huisstede (Paris, FR), Gilbert Hsiao (New York, NY, US), Iemke van Dijk (Leiden, NL), Jeanne Stern (Austin, TX, US), Jennifer Schmidt (Brooklyn, NY, US), Jodie Mack (Lebanon, NH, US), Joey Fauerso (San Antonio, TX, US), Johan Rijpma (Utrecht, NL), Kate Nartker (San Francisco, CA, US), Laen Sanches (Amsterdam, NL), Mark de Weijer (den Haag, NL), Mel Prest & Andrew Kleindolph (San Francisco, CA, US), Molly Schwartz (Brooklyn, NY, US), Santiago Caicedo de Roux (Cali, CO), Sarah Klein & David Kwan (San Francisco, CA, US),  Tal Rosner (London, UK)

In Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Berlin and Zagreb Stop & Go 3-D will screen alongside Doppler Stop an exhibition of optically and perceptually challenging artworks. Pairing the screening alongside an exhibition is designed to illuminate a deeper connection between the artists’ primary practices of painting, drawing and sculpture and the processes used in their animations.

Important Note:
The screenings should be viewed with caution by photosensitive individuals as flickering lights may cause headaches, nausea, seizures, and other unpleasant effects in some people.
