• Freeform: An Animated Remix of the Butler Gallery Collection

    Exhibition 1 April to 7 May, 2006



    Freeform brought elements of the Butler Gallery’s fine permanent collection to life in a way that has never been considered or seen previously and served as a learning tool for museums, art galleries and art centers in a national and international context.

    Freeform is a new concept that allows children and young people to interact with and learn about the visual arts. Freeform uses the innovative ‘Squideo’ animation software developed by Saffron Pictures. Digital photographs of paintings, sculptures, prints and drawings from the Butler Gallery Collection were used as source material with the kind permission of: Robert Ballagh, Brian Bourke, Barrie Cooke, Tom Fitzgerald, Marie Foley, John Gerrard, Peter Jones, Brian Maguire, Janet Mullarney, Peter Power and Patrick Scott.
