For Methods of Motion, I have spent the past few weeks working on a stop-motion project.
As mentioned in previous posts, my direction with this assignment was to create a study for my design of an upcoming opera, The Proof.
The goal here was to offer a visual reference for my idea of what could eventually become a fleet of glowing surgical gloves. I also used this project as a way to work on learning the intricacies of human movement in the hand.
I ran into several frustrating steps along the way, due to issues with iStopMotion. However, after a 3rd reshoot I was able to get some footage working with the LEDs inside of the hand (without crashing my computer). The movement is not as intricate as it was at previous stages, but it does give a fair sense of where the idea can go.
The video can be viewed on vimeo:
