GIF 1 - Shift
The design I chose has a natural rotation growing in dominance as its viewed from bottom to top and a contradiction of vertices when applied to the GIF format. Id say this first iteration of the form into GIF, jarring as I find it speaks to a nature of rotation but unfortunately does not hint at the functionality of the object.
GIF 2 - Illusion of Piercing
By far is this the most appealing and interesting apparition of the structure as a GIF. It is properly anchored by the sub-dominant plain of the seat. All vertices are matched in size so the angles of perspective become highlighted. There is a nice shadow play in the lower third of the image as the diagonal gradient flip horizontally enticing an eye of viewers intrigued by the post modern constructionist aesthetic in industrial design.
This Gif plays with positive and negative space by using varied gray scale with principles of 2D and 3D values. Perspective rendering comes into play in areas where physically the structure is absent but the presence is felt through shadow.
This was an experiment in proportion. I wanted to imagine this design with a different function, so by exacting a center plain the resulting GIF imagines something more like a dwelling. It resounds in its negative space to become a complete structure. The original design of the chair highlights its own sight-lines but has so many holes structurally. This GIF hints at those holes being filled in as if to be darkened windows, strengthening its forebode.
This gif is an example of an unformed structure. The negative space between the two images does not translate any cohesiveness. Instead it deconstructs its. The bold dominant elements relate to two seperate structures.
