10. Stop motion animation: Centrepoint and Great Arthur House

The project this week has turned to stop motion, a form of animation that relies on still images to create a story. I have experimented with four short pieces, each designed to experiment with a different approach.


Centrepoint is a based on a single photographic image of the Centrepoint building in Central London. The images were printed using four colour separation with a variation in the mixture of ink colours to create a range of finished prints. These were incorporated into a stop motion animation with an added caption looking at the history of the building.

Great Arthur House, Golden Lane Estate

Great Arthur House is a the centre of Golden Lane Estate where I live. I have a view of this fifteen-floor tower block from my window. I made two dozen prints again using a single photographic image with a range of colour variations. In this case, I made some images that broke through the frame of the image and others in which there was a stencil overlay. This stop motion animation makes no political points but is designed to experiment with slightly out of register images overlaid over each other.
