I am assisting on a Puppetry Project that focuses on the theme of "Magic." Part of our visual process and experimenting will involve playing with tactile art forms like drawing, illustrating, painting, puppet-building etc in conjunction with film, animation and projection. Some points of visual inspiration for the piece include ectoplasm/ghost/trick photographs from the early world of photography, Victorian portraits, and magicians/magic in general.
I did this experiment based on something I saw in William Kentridge's MoMA exhibit in NYC last spring. He is a genius and, thus, very clever with his use of animation and camerawork. The goal of this experiment was to do a drawing liVe on film, then reverse the footage so the audience views it as an "undrawing."
Here is a clip of the Kentridge animation I based the experiment on. It is the animation on the left, though I highly encourage the watching of both!
