Slices in Time is a strata stencil animated loop and installation made for the ASIFAKEIL gallery space in Vienna.
In this Making Of video you can see the evolution of the loop itself – first I am figuring out the movement of the wave and the boat, then I decide to add a second wave, but that is discarded (too much to happen in one stencil). Then I add the whale and am figuring out its movement, and finally I am finessing the little wave reflection, and changing the drawing into shapes I can cut out.
After transferring these A4 drawings onto the big paper (a laborious process involving dividing the image into quadrants and using my animation stance to trace) I cut them all out, and then hang them on a makeshift stand in my room to be photographed.
The stencils will be on display in Vienna from Feb 1 to March 15: quartier21.at/no_cache/en/program/?tx_mqprogramm_pi1[eventid]=11026&cHash=88faec350a25928d9d0ec84e93f90260
