Gravity by mrmama.tv
In this series of .gif’s (which you can see here, the files together were too large for tumblr!) mrmama.tv created an artwork for two environments, the gallery and the internet. Arek Nowakowski, a motion designer for the project, told us about Gravity. As he states,
“This is a variation on time and movement. A clash of various forces creates a visual performance that surrounds us every day. Gravity is one of these forces and looking at the achieved pictures we have a feeling that everything is immersed in it, like an insect immersed in amber. I decided to stop a very dynamic situation in order to have access to those moments that pass too quickly to have a good look at them. AnimGifs are such ambers with frozen moments in which we were immersed.”
But how does it work? By using the time slice technique, the group took shots and then spun them in an endless loop using .gif’s. The end result is that the subjects appear to be flying in circles. But the images are not on par with the final project, so see them in full here.
