Archiving of Run’s Collection At the National Science and Media Museum
In 2014 I gifted Run’s collection of cells and animation work to The National Science and Media Museum, so they could correctly archive and protect his work for future generations of artists and animators. The collection is large and the archiving is well underway, this makes me very happy. Here is an excert from the blog post and you may read the article in full here:
One of the first collections we have been working on in our Archive Management Project is that of British animator Run Wrake (1965–2012) whose surreal landscapes, looping geometric patterns and psychedelic collaging typify his unique body of work. This collection, gifted to the National Science and Media Museum in 2014, is significant as it not only records Wrake’s singular vision but also suggests the possibilities of experimental animation.
