Although Motion Design often refers to a certain abstraction of shapes and movements, the visual scenario in a Motion Design sequence is strongly influenced by the geometry of real space. As the way we perceive visual information is defined by our physical environment. In Motion Design, perspective and motion is extracted from reality and translated into the abstract space. Motion Design plays with the dynamics of the real space in a world without gravity.
Most of this projects started in the real space. We shoot photos and videos from Hong Kong and transfer them into the virtual space - remap, reconstruct, deconstruct, extend and rearrange them. Architecture becomes abstract form and vice versa. The possible scenarios are endless and only restricted by imagination. But what makes really sense in a world where everything is possible? This was left to the students to explore.
