Michael Patterson and Candace Reckinger turn animation into a wild sensory art installation

Michael Patterson and Candace Reckinger are the types of artists who are perfectly comfortable remaining unclassifiable. They create work that is as comfortable on television as it is in a museum.

You could describe what they do as animation. After all, they teach in the animation department at the University of Southern California and have long created animation sequences for commercials, film and music videos — most famously for the smash 1980s single “Take on Me” by the Norwegian band A-ha. (A video, incidentally, that is part of the permanent collection at New York’s Museum of Modern Art.)
