My Proposal is to produce a set of short, flip book animated loops presented side by side (similarly to the Black dogs progress).
My first idea is based on an old cinema projector. The projector will be broken down into segments to make more manageable, flip-book sized parts. Elements within each segment will loop and join up to the segments surrounding it. I have also added in little Victorian 'helpers' (top hats included!) into the machine to create a small narrative in the work and to add an element of comedy. Below is a quick sketch of how the projector will look;
Below is an example of how the projector would be split into segments.
Alternatively I also have come up with another similar idea where none of the segments are joined through narrative, only through the theme of cinema. For example one segment may be 35mm film looping, another may be a zoetrope spinning and one would be a carrousel of film rotating.
In an attempt to encourage the audience to interact with the work more a guard and peepholes have been introduced. This would force the viewers to have to get close up to the window to peer through the holes in order to see the looped animations. See below for ideas sheet and diagrams.
