[The banner art collective is a c]ollection of ‘Banner’ animations for all to use at will, created for use in areas of websites more commonly used for web advertisements. [It is a]lso featured on the Banner Art Collective server http://www.bannerart.org. Add these banners to the pages of your web site. Alexandra Reill’s flickering black & white marvels declare a contemporary existential blackness. Like ‘lost and found’, family negatives. Ghostly souls animated and jammed into a frame by a stroke of fate.

text marc garrett, 2002

The banner sujets are close ups taken from visual material created in 1998 in the framework of the production of the interactive game S.P.I.N.Y. – now being animated in a different form the develop into a series of animations of their own.
