Title:
I’m an Old Cowhand and Waiting for the Number 12
Authors:
Arnott, Steve
Abstract:
An animation that continues to explore non-traditional stories and imaginative play using digital media and plastic figures. Arnott has previously worked with children to animate their own stories with traditional toys (which he collects) and digital media. This animation considers the fantastical things that could happen in the real world and do happen in the world of toys and animation. The animated stories are outcomes of research into the creative thinking enabled by playing with traditional wood and plastic toys and how this translates from older performative methods to new media presentations. The V&A approached Arnott with a view to exhibiting the work. As a project, the process developed through collaboration and detailed research. The work reflects the Museum’s collections and brings the theme of play alive, through the stop-motion animation process. It is a synthesis of ancient and modern production techniques. The resulting work appeals to a broad range of ages, those who remember some of the objects from their own childhood and children of today who are intrigued by their quirky nature.
