Social Convergence/ Divergence

After a fair few technical failures, panic attacks, 700 frames and many hours later, here is my final animation. Under the title Convergence/Divergence I chose to explore the social interactions we experience within our everyday lives, and the idea of these moments influencing us perhaps more than we initially realise. I also projected the piece onto various surfaces in town, putting the footage back into it's original context. Perhaps i'm slightly delirious but i would definitely consider doing another animation in future, however in an attempt to retain some sanity, it's back to static images for a while.

‘For, to be a stranger is naturally a very positive relation; it is a specific form of interaction.’

Georg Simmel
