quick test

who decided .swf files should exist?


In the process of attempting to animate the experience of travelling into a black hole this pattern started happening with the layers, i think i like it more than the failed animation i have so far.

Long time no posts...dissertations are no fun :(
Just a quick experiment, think I like the idea of adding drawn images to the spirals to show things/people getting sucked into a black hole (spaghettification)...but still don't know exactly where this is going!

Added a deranged badly drawn face here.  Have definitely lost all my fine liners and don't even know if i like this yet or not..

'A line is a dot that went for a walk' - Paul Klee

So I made a few tests of these patterns onto some big paper with a needle and thread.  I like how they turned out, but am a bit lost at where to take it from here as I need to be teaching the viewer something from whatever my final product is.  At the moment I am thinking of taking something from this technique to make either a book or an animation of some kind.

This was made on black card, I found it made a really nice effect when held up to a light.

Never really used Illustrator before, but figured out how to make some vectors...still need lots of practice though!  Think I am going to make some really big detailed ones, then sew them once i've figured out the patterns on some big card to make a black hole sequence.

just realised it's a bit wonk :'(

Happy 13.75 billionth birthday universe

For my personal project I am going to look at how the universe began and how it may end.
This is maybe my favourite video of the most important image ever taken by the hubble, which makes you feel very small :)

blackish holeish thing

New blog, as I got fed up with the old one and am starting my last year at Camberwell now :(
Here are some pictures I've been making of black holes;
