Countdown Through the Lens

This project involved creating an animated countdown. I chose to include some photographs from my Black Hole Sun project, into the countdown. The photographs are solarized images, in the tradition of Man Ray's work.

I created a leaf shutter and placed five photographs behind it. Each firing of the shutter reveals a different photograph and a different number spinning down. I placed the numbers where they felt visually pleasing in relation to the content of the photographs. I also tried to get the numbers to land close to the center and along lines. To me, looking through a camera lens is like dreaming while awake.
