170 MG QuickTime File

A Tale is Olga Ast’s second video project and first digital animated film, produced using Adobe After Effects, Maya and Final Cut Pro. Both minimalist and abstract, it is an attempt to create a unique visual language as a means of developing narrative. While ultimately telling a story about the nature of creative struggle, she uses the repetition and variation of images to reinvent and reinvigorate traditional storytelling techniques.

Olga Ast is a conceptual installation and video artist was born in Russia and has exhibited in Moscow, New York and worldwide since the 1980s. She has been living in the USA since 1994, and resides in New York. She is currently at work on several new art and video projects.
