Further Abstracts by Alma Alloro


Alma Alloro is a Berlin based artist. She describes herself as a contemporary retro-futuristic artist.

Further Abstract is a series of drawings converted to a GIF animation and then converted back to a manual animation spinning from a bicycle wheel. A triangle, a square and a circle move in space, spin, decrease, increase transform and disappear in series of short animated loops.

The drawings became a series of animated GIFs, exhibited at Caesura Gallery. The animations then stepped back from digital to analog, bringing the manual groove one step further, with images on spinning wheel, the animation triggered by a strobe light. This subject works meticulously for hours and hours on a seemingly pointless mission. This meticulous process is contradicted by the extremely short duration of the animation itself.

The work brings forward the production process, recanting the roughness of an earlier aesthetic in animation such as those expressed in the experimental abstract films of Hans Richter’s ‘Rhythmus 21’ from 1921.
