Hertzfeldt's Bittersweet Spot in the Eye of the Storm
This is a paper I presented within the "Design in Times of Turmoil: Displacement, Replacement, Emplacement" Symposium organized by 4T. It is about how Don Hertzfeldt's idiosyncratic poetics and production techniques allowed him to remain an independent artist within ever-changing animation market. The proceedings of the symposium shall be published soon, but meanwhile, the paper can be reached here. And the poster of the Symposium is here.
