Stop Motion Studies - Series 13
Stop Motion Studies - Series 13 project page
The "Stop Motion Studies" extend my long standing interest in
narrative and, in particular, look at the subway as a stage upon which
social dynamics and individual behavior are increasingly mediated by
digital technology. As one of the most vibrant and egalitarian
networks in our cities, subways bring people from a wide range of
social and cultural backgrounds into close contact with each other.
This process plays a significant role in shaping both the character of
a city as well as our individual identities.
In this remix of footage originally shot for previous installments in
London, Paris, Boston, New York, and Tokyo, each installment's modular
structure has provided a library of building blocks that have been
edited into a linear animation approximately 5 minutes long. The
algorithmic montage constituting each clip's DNA remains intact, while
the individual sequences are now composited within a linear framework.
The speed of the transitions is based on network connection speed.
