MARY SHELLEY'S FRANKENSTEIN RE-ANIMATED
On April 4th, 2019, in celebration of the 200th anniversary of Mary Shelley’s immortal gothic horror novel and feminist text, USC came alive with a multimedia, interactive and live performance extravaganza.
Under a dark and drizzling sky, spectators watched as animated digital projections transformed Doheny Library’s exterior into a vibrant, electronic canvas for re-telling the original story of Frankenstein. Under the direction of digital artists Akiko Yamashita, Yo-Yo Lin, and numerous USC faculty, more than a hundred USC students working in different disciplines –animation, interactive media, music, theatre, dance, art and design, and architecture– collaborated to re-animate Mary Shelley’s enduring classic in stunning fashion.
