Andy Holden: As Speed Increases Objects Can Be In Several Places At Once

The result of five years' work, Andy Holden’s Laws of Motion in a Cartoon Landscape presents a fully realised animated theory proposing the world is now best understood as a cartoon.

Part-lecture, part-documentary, part-conspiracy theory, the film examines the formation of ‘laws’ within cartoons as a way of making sense of the world we live in. The artist’s avatar invites the viewer to experience a world where laws such as ‘Everything falls faster than an anvil’ are given the same critical attention as philosophy, physics and politics.

Laws of Motion in a Cartoon Landscape is an hour long exploration of the world after the end of history: an irrational space where anything can happen, yet certain things reoccur.

The film will be installed alongside a wider body of work connecting to this long-term project, including new films, prints and drawings.
