from Rhett :
Silver + Black is a premium retail and exhibition initiative that sells art, fashion and limited edition objects of desire.
I was commissioned by Casio to produce a moving image piece inspired by the theme of 'time'.
Using circles as a symbol of time; decaying particles and undulating waves transition throughout the animated work to show that the only constant is change. The piece then loops to begin a new life cycle.
