HSE Design Students’ Animation Videos at TEDxMoscow
On the 15th February the 2015 TEDxMoscow conference took place for which second year students at HSE’s School of Design, and their teacher, Animation Curator, Alexei Ryumin had made videos on the key issues under discussion.
At the conference, academics and businessmen discussed the burning issues of today’s world. The title of this year’s TEDxMoscow, And the Possible is Possible refers to the main topic — an attempt to establish boundaries for what is possible for humans and technology.
In their videos, students presented the scientific, ecological and social aspects of the issues on a global scale. One of the animation videos shows a model of global ecological crisis and then a strategy to avoid it. Another, equally intriguing, shows the Earth hurtling around the superelevated curves of a giant pinball machine, weaving in and out between symbols of national interests (St Basil’s, Big Ben and the Statue of Liberty) and conflict zones.
The videos were designed by Tatiana Pechenkina, Maksim Yerofeev, Kristina Segeyeva, Azat Islamov, Adelina Adigamova. You can watch them on Youtube.
