What Lies Below: Diving into the Animated Worlds of Eirini Vianelli

“You’ve got to work with your mistakes until they look intended.”

— Raymond Carver, “Cathedral”

Eirini Vianelli, Icebergs, 2018

‘’25 years ago, I loved watching animated movies, but I had no idea that animation could be used in so many different ways. I never saw it in theatres and operas like today. I had no idea the internet was coming and that there would be such a need for content. Really, I had no idea what the future would hold — I still don’t, but now I find that exciting’’

Eirini Vianneli, SNF Fellow 2018

‘’Animation helps us find that attitude of not assuming the worst in others. That’s why we like children: because they remind us to see the world in this way. I think animation can offer us the same insight.”
