I am taking Art and Perception class with Elizabeth. From that class, I have learned artists such as Paul Klee and Wassily Kandinsky who were interested in flat paintings that are composed from simple elements. I am inspired by how simple shapes can create complex and beautiful compositions. My another intention is to practice my skill of using after effect by animating paintings or a composition. The process of giving a work the motion also challenge on my creativity.
Also, I want to animate something base on my previous work of abstract and simple shapes, inspired by Paul Klee and Wassily Kandinsky. I believe that abstract shapes are much more compelling, natural, and sophisticated. If time allows, I am also going to rework with my animation with interesting colors.
For me, sometimes a better animation archives without too much design and plan at first. I don’t want to set my mind on what exact design I will create. I want to explore as much different effects as I want for my animation, just to experience different effects.
The above pictures I took from my sketchbook was also my expression of lines and shapes in a repetitive pattern. They are also going to be a source of my animation design.
1) first project: animating Kandinsky’s Blue:
Wassily Kandinsky, Blue, 1922
I am starting with expressing my imagination on different part of the drawing: the bull’s-eye like group of circles, the upheaving waves, the ladder-like line group etc.
