Every animation should give the illusion of continuity, movement, life and make the transitions between frames imperceptible. To achieve this goal it has to become a series of coherent still images that flow in front of our eyes. The process of creating synthetic animation is hidden, fascinating, time consuming and it requires talent and patience. In the context of making the invisible visible we wanted to communicate the complexity and depth of creating animation and make it not only noticeable, but also tangible. We created a kinetic sculpture that incorporates all the frames in our revisitation of the famous Psycho shower scene.
