Diana | Perpetual Surrender (2013)

Perpetual Surrender is my second video experimenting with folded paintings. This time I used images with a strong, singular light source, that cast a shadow on one side of the figure (Carmen Elle from DIANA). I tried to illustrate the idea of a personality with different sides, by mirroring and animating the lit side of the portrait, then contrasting that by mirroring the shadow side of the portrait.

I think it’s interesting that a lot of movement and animation can be added to an image with simple folding and plan to do more of it in the future.
