As an introduction to using the adobe flash software, I created this animation to an aboriginal piece of music by Australian composer and musician Richard Walley. I was greatly inspired by the Papunya Tula art movement as well as more traditional works of aboriginal art. As opposed to creating the whole thing in flash, I drew out circles using ink mixed with oil and recoloured these shapes using photoshop before importing them into flash, which I feel gives the piece a more hand-crafted aesthetic, as opposed to one which is very computer generated.
