Video: Stop-motion animation
Experimentation with stop-motion animation techniques:
In most of my work, I am interested in conveying the immaterial aspect of being alive- transformations within emotions, spirituality, etc.
Via stop-motion animation, I wanted to explore converting "ceramic" imagery that still suggests inherent quality of the material but loses its physical form.
The branches in this video are made of ceramics. After digitalizing the ceramic imagery through photography, I animated the imagery under the light box and this gives the ceramics imagery glass-like quality. Videos are essentially images that don't have form when viewed. Therefore the result of my animation attempt is ceramic images rendered formless.
The sounds of the pieces are created from colliding ceramics pieces and glass pieces to accentuate the ethereal material-glass and its intersection with ceramics since the glazed ceramic surface is essentially glass.
The musical part was glass music performance I found on youtube. I do not own the music. Music: youtube.com/watch?v=QdoTdG_VNV4
