Crux Film

(Alexander Stewart, Lilli Carré, 2013, 5 min)

Precarious and fluid arrangements constantly interrupt one another in a montage of waiting, anticipating, and transitioning forms. Arrangements of marks and geometric forms are faced with unresolved states. Objects struggle to maintain their shape, stay upright, or avoid disappearing.

Crux Film is an animation composed of segments of work by Lilli Carré and Alexander Stewart. Created over the course of several weeks in shared studio spaces, these simple animated segments developed directly in response to one another; ideas, images, challenges and structures ping-ponging back and forth between the two animator’s light boxes.


Directed by Alexander Stewart , Lilli Carré
