Adding the extra dimension of motion, however, something rarely touched upon. In static art, people must manipulate an image in their minds to see the alternate perception of a work. In contrast, animation brings a layer of explicit transformation to the piece. For certain designs (such as this one), animation brings another layer of understanding that the viewer may not immediately grasp. Adding the dimension of time brings a unique element to an otherwise explored theme.
We first started out with a gist of what we wanted—a shape that moved in a repeated pattern that produced something greater when they went under linear transformation. In this initial case, we had five triangles that transformed into a star. However, this sketch did not employ negative space. What was in the negative space of the transformed figure is a pentagon, which is less prominently distinguished.
Is this a good/useful/informative piece of content to include in the project? Have your say!
