Director's Biography

UK-based Ignatius Rake is the only foreign artist to win two
awards at the annual Unco Film Festival in Tokyo, Japan.
Originally an analogue collage artist, he today creates
digital artworks using the same cut-and-paste principles but
employing modern technology to produce images that
disconcertingly blend photographic realism with the
physiologically impossible. In animating these chimera to
music, he jumps from the Cliff of Repulsion into the Uncanny
Valley, a world the Japanese call kimo-kawaii, or adorably
gross. More information, as well as contact details and other
works, can be viewed online at his website here:
