Family reflections (Royal College of Art)

In 2010 Helen Mason worked was comissioned by Joan Ashworth at the RCA to develop a lecture for MA animation students regarding systemic thinking, family and the use of animated documentary (both watching and creating animation) as part of therapy. Several projects arose from this session including Comfort Arthur's work looking at her experience of growing up with her father in Ghana. Here is her student film 'Red' which was developed in consultation with Ashworth and Mason.

Mason and Ashworth are interested in animated documentary and its potential use in narrative and visual forms of therapy. The use of animated documentary techniques in therapy was discussed with students as part of this visiting lecture.
