This project encourages viewers to watch and engage with animation physically.
Discs were created with animated sequences embroidered onto their surface. They have been designed to be played on standard turntables and their shape and size is inherited from 10" vinyl records. The animation is activated when a strobe light illuminates the discs in sync with the embroidered frames of animation.
This work was completed for my degree project at the ANU School of Art in 2013.
Seasons is a surreal motion graphics animation based on the changing seasons. Beginning with spring, the richly hued illustrations in this work come alive as they transform in color and rhythmic tempo to reveal the full seasonal spectrum.
Software: After Effects, Cinama 4D, Maya(Goldfish and Jellyfish)
A visual piece by Michael Zoidis & Jodie Southgate, exploring the hazy slow-building ambient piece 'a2' by Ólafur Arnalds & Nils Frahm.
"For the video I cast my mind back to an old chemistry set I had when younger and experimented with some milk, food colour, vinegar and a macro lens to create a visual piece to accompany the music. The results were unexpected. I was rather pleased with some and I wanted to share them with you." - Michael Zoidis, director
"An ambient track that wraps itself around your synapses like balm as they've been dwindled by the unavoidable daily contact with Skrillex and PSY." - Noisey Video Premiere
This is an audio-reactive algorithmic visual art piece that uses the concept of charged particles and flocking to simulate a organism that is alive and composed of micro-organisms. The movement is rather pleasing thus I decided to exhibit the algorithm in a rather catchy video art fashion. Enjoy.
