Early Flash animation: Braingirl by Marina Zurkow
Braingirl is a 7-part experimental animated series made for the web, published on Submarine Channel.
Wearing her inside out, mutant-cute Braingirl lives with her sidekick Bag Boy in a world of externalized emotion, where nothing is hidden and nothing is what it appears to be.
This fascinating independent creation by the New York-based multi-media artist Marina Zurkow is more than a decade old now. As one of the freakiest animation series from the Submarine Channel 1.0 archives, Braingirl serves as a great example of how innovative media artists in the 2000’s embraced new technologies like Flash to create fresh, new and uncompromising content for the web.
