As we were looking at metamorphosis' in this weeks IOL class, I chose to do an animation of a lamp exploding into flames.
The two duality's were 'light' and 'fire' as my studio 1 project is based on the novel 'frankenstein'. Fire and light show up symbolically throughout the story: Light representing the pursuit of knowledge, and fire, being the wild and destructive material of light.
The exploding lamp animation also takes inspiration from 'Frankenstein's' extended title, the 'modern prometheus', who in the greek mythology gave the knowledge of fire to humanity, but was punished for it.
This excercise was a helpful testing ground for chosing the right props, colors and for making effective transitions.
