Apps for editing smartphone photos like Circular and Roll World enable you to turn a photo into a magical circle or spin. You can make animations from these. Create tiny steps of your edit then put these still photos together into an app like Stop Motion Studio to create a photo based animation. Adding my own music and words, I used these stop motion techniques with photo editing apps like Circular and Roll World, Photofox, Trigraphy, Snapseed, and Prisma to create my animation, “It’s all in the telling”. This animation was featured in the Visual Fringe Festival here in London.
I will be using these same mobile photography editing techniques to create River Revery, an Augmented Reality Art Collaboration with the poet Penn Kemp. Stay tuned for the photographic visual art, animation, poetry and musical intertwinings.
These spinning tree tops are part of the first of the River Revery animations, also featuring the text from The Dream Life of Teresa Harris by Penn Kemp, and the original music of Mary Ashton, from The Light of the East Ensemble. The Dream Life of Teresa Harris Augmented Reality art exhibit will be launching this Sunday, July 22 at Eldon House and will be on display for the week following.
