World on Fire Second Prize: Raquel Meyers
Supernova Digital Animation Festival 2020, Denver
Juror remarks: Striking at the heart of nostalgia, Raquel Meyer’s 8-bit narrative style is magnetic. Experienced as an art of momentum, “Inattention” asks it’s audience to decode the essence of a female character by stretching the boundaries of visual representation. The artwork’s ability to find equilibrium and new forms implemented by corruption offers a new perspective on how to confront contemporary realities. — Livy Snyder

「Inattention」 Raquel Meyers
The use of teletext was unique and had a strong impact that made the work stand out among the candidates. Everything was highly original—the way the work was drawn in perspective by using different dots, the music playing in the background, and the mysterious storytelling that felt as if in a strange dream. On the other hand, we felt its raw expression to be dark and gloomy, regardless of the artist’s intentions. We would have liked to see a development in the story that betrayed this feeling to show light and hope to the audience.
The Heat Death of the Universe is a collaborative project by Arrate Hidalgo & Raquel Meyers based on the eponymous 1967 experimental short story by author and visual artist Pamela Zoline. The project is being developed with the support of a 2020 Fundación Bilbao Arte Fundazioa Production Grant.
