Animation director to screen work

Award-winning director Lynn Tomlinson, known for clay-on-glass animation, will screen her work and answer questions at 7 p.m. Friday in Room 218 of the York College Humanities Center.

The event is open to the public free of charge.

Tomlinson’s work — which involves spreading a layer of oil-based modeling clay and altering the image to create a moving painting full of fluid transformations — explores environmental themes, often imagining how non-humans might view humanity’s social and environmental impact. It has screened at festivals including Annecy, Ann Arbor, Cinanima, CineKid, Hiroshima and Ottawa. Tomlinson is an associate professor at Towson University.

Her works include “Ten Degrees of Strange” from 2021, which was created to accompany a song by environmental writer Robert Macfarlane and musician/actor Johnny Flynn; “The Elephant’s Song,” 2018, which is a Vimeo Staff Pick and screened in over 30 festivals, receiving 18 awards; and “The Ballad of Holland Island House,” 2014, which received a prize from Greenpeace.

Animation director Lynn Tomlinson will screen her work and speark Friday at York College.
