Doing the Crochet Cosmic Twist

Worm Turning #2
Click on the above link to see the film.
Putting the tiny crocheting hands into the `Wormhole` adds an element of real and obvious mechanical movement to the digitaly edited rotating crochet.The `Wormhole` has a constant and incessant direction which is is robotic and inorganic, as well as hypnotic and compelling. The small arachnid movement of the hands releaves some of the visual tension. They also create a focal point at the centre of the hole, drawing your attention inwards, and creating an interesting optical illusion.
`They poor the space into a larger space, which is infinity`
Mario Merz 1990.
`Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic`.
Arthur C. Clarke.
Film editing is visual magic- hey presto!
