Via examples of recent experimental animation works, including Chris Cornish, Ryoichi Kurokawa and Alex Jukes this essay posits that space within a 3-D CGI world can form the material basis when working within this mode of production. Also, drawing from Heidegger’s discourse on space this chapter outlines a combined theoretical and a practical exploration into space as material where emptiness and the void are offered as methods for an investigation into experimental 3-D CGI animation practice. This chapter represents a study of materiality within the production and presentation of 3-D CGI animation arguing that the familiar imagined infinite space presented and realised within a 3-D CGI world acts as its basis and status as material.
