Lab for Animation Research

The Lab for Animation Research (LAR) operates as a research centre within the Department of Fine Arts of the Cyprus University of Technology. LAR aims to study the artistic possibilities of animation through the wide use of tradigital technologies and artistic practices to develop experimental animation modes in filmmaking and visual arts.

Currently, the Lab is concerned with ways of constructing the animated motion and its relation to cinematic space and time, as well as with the resulting the visual and conceptual impressions of these parameters.

Lab has three frameworks in which the above research operates: i) the cinematic framework, ii) the theoretical/philosophical framework, iii) the artistic framework.
