    About The Work

    Artist Lucy Raven works with the expanded means of film. By scrutinizing how the illusion of spatial depth is created and exploring her medium between the poles of the still image and 3D animation, she addresses a central question of filmmaking in the twenty-first century. Since the demise of analogue film, increasingly immaterial processes of visual production dominate Hollywood’s industrial manufacture of animated settings. Actors play their parts in green screens; postproduction studios subsequently transplant them into programmed environments without any basis in reality. The nexus between work and visual production, meanwhile, is growing ever more complex in a world of globalized labor. In this work, the artist portrays the first ever strike in Hollywood, a 1941 picketing initiated by a team of Disney animators which resulted in salary negotiations by the Screen Cartoonists Guild.
