Intro to Fragmented Animated Texts

Fragmented animated texts are sets of thematically related animations combining text and image. Superficially, they can be compared to novels broken down into chapters, but that doesn't quite capture what I have in mind, as most novels possess plots and characters. Here theme is everything, so a better analogy might be collections of poems along the same theme. Although I am a computer animator, my artistic ambitions are far closer to literature than video or cinema. My roots are literary. I learned computer animation because I felt a deep need to expand in a visual direction. Nevertheless, my vision remains a poetic one, akin to William Blake's melding of text and image in his illuminated texts.
