Paper Motion Studies

Quick motion studies to work out ideas about continuity, discontinuity, and narrative in a frame series.

 

Blank Page: A stab at illustration of a mental construct without direct representation, but I had to rely on sound. 

 

Something Else There: Another stab at the illustration of a mental construct without direct representation, but much more subtle. This time animation as Mime, or the “art of silence” as Marcel Marceau called it. 

 

Paper Dance: Just a dance. If I could could fly, this is how I’d do it (fall gracefully).

It’s surprising how easy it is to see both movements at the same time and not get confused. You’d think collation would destroy continuity. I guess there’s more thought happening in the eye than “perception” might imply, like in the footsteps of Robert Breer.

Wait for it.

Nothing like a good cadence.

The cycle of art making.
