At last! My animation can be found by following the link in Youtube:
A group of nine artists gathered to show their animations, these were shown as “Light on the Fringe” as an event with “Strand Ephemera”, a biennial exhibition that occurs in a beach-side park in Townsville.
The exhibition was delivered by Gallery services Townsville City Council and hosted by Umbrella Studio fro 30th August to 8th September 2013.
My offering – MORPHOMITOSIS was produced by rotoscoping a variety of videos that I had taken myself in Adobe Flash program.
I took the title by corrupting the title of Franz Kafka’s Metamorphosis. as Morphing and Mitosis – the biological process of cellular splitting, which is illustrated in the title sequence. The head and shoulders are my own, taken from a 3D rendering of my MRI performed during the morning warm-up of our departmental machine.
The next sequence shows me climbing out of my own brain, and morphing into a beetle on the ceiling. The beetle then morphs into a giraffe, from my childhood in Africa.
The giraffe then morphs into the wolf with greedy eyes from Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf The wolf then morphs back into myself and I climb back inside my head and disappear by being rubbed out.
It is an intensely personal animation and refers back to all kinds of influences in my life.
I hope you enjoy it.
