Vancouver Fraction is a collection of animated shorts and art videos by Canadian artists. The majority of the artists included are Vancouver based artists. These videos embody a cross section of the themes that are currently inspiring video artists and animators in Canada. There are films addressing medium and the tools of animation as a source for contemplation as seen in the works of Paul Morris and Stephen Wichuk. In the works of Oliver Hockenhull and Julia Feyrer, a focus on the exchange between sound and vision explores limitless combinations in a refined and subtle manner. Finally, Sam Scott and Brandon Bloomaert incorporate both materials and sound, while simultaneously engaging narrative in traditional style for the former and experimental style in the latter.The reel attempts to reflect the sensibilities in the art and media community here in Vancouver.
