The Faculty of Culture + Community and InTransit BC Limited Partnership (Canada Line) are pleased to present NOVA, a joint public art project featuring the work of Emily Carr animation students. Student reels from this project are on display in the Library’s display window until February 28th.

Led by Martin Rose, Assistant Dean of Animation + Computer Graphic Imagery, NOVA was produced by students in Emily Carr’s Experimental Animation class. The project introduced one new clip each week, January 17-February 18, 2011. The 10-second thematically related films appear simultaneously on 25 LCD screens every two minutes in stations along the Vancouver-Richmond corridor. The animations are presented here for the first time in their entirety, and range from ink and water, compositing, cut-outs, 3D puppets and flashlights.

Contributing artists include: Jenna Brown, Kristen Campbell, Kendra Davey, Gaby Esquivel, James Hebers, Laurence Li, Julie Liu, Becky Manson, Ryan McKenna, Toan Nguyen, Leon Rego, Konstantin Steshenko and Sunny Xie.
Creative Input – Ippik Friesen, Carrie Mombourquette, Kim Palmer + Ceci Velasco
