The paper aims to propose a consideration on the contemporary practices of abstract animation through the analysis of the artistic career of the experimental animator Leonardo Carrano. Carrano perceives the image as an engraving: a matte body, at the same time hard and malleable, inviolable and metamorphic. Within the panorama of contemporary animation, Carrano's work represents an emblematic example of convergence between artisan and computer animation techniques, reinterpreting the dialectic between tradition and innovation through a contamination aesthetic in which theories and practices of artistic avant-gardes coexist with the languages of computer technology.

Abstract

The paper aims to propose a consideration on the contemporary practices of abstract animation through the analysis of the artistic career of the experimental animator Leonardo Carrano. Carrano perceives the image as an engraving: a matte body, at the same time hard and malleable, inviolable and metamorphic. Within the panorama of contemporary animation, Carrano's work represents an emblematic example of convergence between artisan and computer animation techniques, reinterpreting the dialectic between tradition and innovation through a contamination aesthetic in which theories and practices of artistic avant-gardes coexist with the languages of computer technology.
