David Ellis’s motion painting, "Animal," is the visual record of his residency at The University of Texas at Austin. Inspired by personal conversations and the natural environment, "Animal" showcases the delights and details of the creative forces of nature that often go unnoticed. The nine-and-a half-minute animation features a kaleidoscope of spectacular creatures, landscapes and abstractions — in varying colors and shapes — interspersed with dramatic splashes of paint.
Videos are screened on a media station in the Art Building located on the corner of E. 23rd St. and San Jacinto Boulevard. Adjacent to art history classrooms and the Visual Arts Center galleries, the media station is in an open atrium that provides stadium seating for daily viewing.
