Kaleidoscope

Made for The Virginia Gallery's Kaleidoscope Exhibition part of Pride Glasgow July 2014

The concept is based on my own theory of how people see others. Like a digital image made up of small squares of colour (pixels) these represent individual bits of information of the person, the more information the clearer the image. A person is forever changing through experience and knowledge, so those pixels of information change and fluctuate therefore the image of the person is never stationary. The kaleidoscope reflections represent the images that different people see of a single person, no image the same, always seen from different angles.

The idea was to produce a 3D motion graphics project where a single frame of the animation will be printed and hung in the gallery. This was part of the concept that a single image reference does not tell the whole story
The 'Cube' represents the self and the 'Bowl' the perspective view of the individual in the external world. All colour radiates from the 'Cube'
