The Symbolic Language of Non Spiritual Materials.

Bonkers Frilly Hankie!
The piece of animation below was filmed with the kind permission of Oriel Myrddin Gallery, Carmarthen, Wales.
If using a well explored technique like stop frame animation , the holistic approach to original materials and their interpretation is essential. Although this piece of animation is interesting and amusing. it`s also visually very peculiar. As a technical experiment, it is a good `sketch book`, piece, but there are issues we need to address, we need to refilm. Jake has found some appropriate `green screen` cloth for filming, which will remove the intrusive back ground. (Although the circle of reflected natural light is something I would like to work with). We also need to address the phenomenological nature of the fabrics that the piece is made from, and put the concepts that describe the piece into context. Rather than gratuitously creating a perfunctory piece of animation , I feel that this is a piece that could be developed. That`s exciting!
