Master Of Animation, Games & Interactivity

For Week Five I created an animation from the perspective of a flower using Procreate on the iPad.

My idea for this week was 'What does a flower's daily schedule look like?' How does a flower understand and interpret the passing of time? I approached this visually by including only the elements that are most important from the perspective of the plant such as the position of the sun and moon relative to the petals. Opening and closing as it instinctively faces towards the light.

Time as contextualised by the lifecycle of plants has fascinated me since I watched David Attenboroughs 'The Private Life of Plants' (Attenborough 1995) Docuseries as a child. By focusing so closely on the world from the plants point of view, the docseries is able to highlight aspects of life that we often take for granted.
