    Megan Wear (16)

    Megan created her animation whilst attending The Factory; Tyneside Cinema’s free arts project for young people aged 14-19 who are interested in sound, moving image and visual art.

    Megan was one of thirteen young artists who spent ten weeks experimenting in strange ways with sound, moving image and visual art at Tyneside Cinema.

    It took Megan a long time to make all of the characters. She also had to work against the clock as she could not attend all of the Factory sessions due to school commitments.

Megan’s work responds to the theme of ‘strange’ through the story of Alice in Wonderland.

Megan was part of the Factory, thirteen young artists aged 14-19, who spent ten weeks experimenting in strange ways with sound, moving image and visual art at Tyneside Cinema.

Using David Lynch’s early animations as a starting point, their personal definitions and interpretations became wide ranging: expressed in a selection of creative works, presenting a combination of ideas that stray into the world of surrealism and the uncanny.
