225 images in total. But was relatively easy to film a moving subject and stagnant background.
In fact there is definitely many more ways to exploit the composition of staircases x M.C Escher such as placing different sequences side by side and in different directions such that the perspective made sense. But because my perspective was inaccurate it was a tedious and non aesthetic processor piecing the work together on a single screen.
The Penrose illusion wasn’t so easily replicated. I used the same flight of stairs to make interesting angles and an endless loop if you will.
Had this idea of a sea of people, or a huge crowd with an individual. Wanted to focus on a portrait with a moving background. I was thinking of how I could frame the background and where I could place my subject. Was thinking where it would be crowded but would have a nice colourful background, therefore I chose town, Bugis.
This is the completed GIF
Its a little small, because the biggest upload size is 3MB 🙁
The main issue I faced was the crowd flow and it affected the loop of the video. If it was more crowded the effect would have been more aesthetic.
Also stray hairs. Remind me to bring hair spray next time.
