In my line of work I don’t get out of the office much. So when I do it’s quite the occasion.
Continuing the project of uploading most pages form Notebook Ethel. As I said before these are from a few years ago now.
An animated short film made with just one image exploring the dancing potential of the still sculptures at Nidaros Cathedral in Trondheim, Norway.
As you’d know if you followed my Instagram stories or Snapchat I am always looking for these kind of animatable repetitive elements in the world. Modern technology is a wonderful thing with regards to making that kind of capture possible and putting straight out into the world in a matter of moments.
This is a great example of applying animation to a great piece of architecture.
“Orphanages are dense and harmonious living spaces housing hundreds of children under same roof simultaneously. Abandoned Jewish Orphanage Building in Ortaköy (OHR-tah-keuy) Istanbul (also known as El Orfelinato) has been home for thousand lives during its century old history. It holds the memory of the past in worn stairs and layers of paint.
“El Orfelinato means ‘The Orphanage’ in Spanish. The name has been used by Sephardi Jews (Jews from Spain) community in Istanbul for decades. Sephardi Jews have a 500 year history in Istanbul since they were forced to migrate with mass conversions and executions by Catholic Monarchs in Iberia in 15th century.
