Electric summer days is series of 5 animations, with poetic feminine subtle line illustrations, looping, or controlled by viewer’s movement.
My goal was to make the connection between drawings and digital, virtual immersive image spaces, merging different forms into new one. I was hoping to achieve depth of space, in these two dimensional drawings, using parallax movement, object rotation, change of size, perspective shortening, relative sizes and overlapping of objects.
I was on a shortlist for Schlosspost Web Residency with proposed research about possibilities for exploring 360 degree animated drawing online, on a web site. Beside, VR environment with drawings, explored in conventional ways, I find very inspiring the possibility of viewing parts of the panorama, using the position of the mouse on the screen or position of viewer in front of web camera or alternatively movement sensors. 360 degree animation can be seen at Internet Moon Gallery by Manuel Minch
All 5 animations can be seen as animated gifs made for IKA album “my bike’s in the backyard it was too cold for my horse” and don’t ask us why it is set at the swimming pool.
