Strange Beast directing duo, Kijek / Adamski, have unveiled their unique film Trace, which is now screening at the Motion Factory animation exhibition at Paris digital arts centre La Gaîté lyrique.
The stop-frame film, which plays on a seamless loop, was specially created for projection onto a 20-metre-wide space and features two characters playing tennis, with the ball’s ‘trace’ through the air made tangible with colourful shapes. The film comprises almost 17000 still images.
Video made for Motion Factory exhibition.
