Figuring the Invisible: Conventions and Tactics in Animation for Science Outreach

Project description

Communicating scientific ‘invisibles’ through animation

Animation can inspire scientific communication. There is a link between academia, scientists and filmmakers. This link will be explored and strengthened by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions project FICTA SciO. The research will identify the audiovisual conventions and communication tactics of animation in multimedia science outreach, in respect to the representation of invisible objects (too big, too small, too far away in space and time). The project will start with the creation of a list of animations in multimedia science outreach from 1980. It will also create an open access database of multimedia science outreach about the ‘invisible’ and promote good practices in animation for science.
