cubex, 2017, Tony Samangy – tinycinema

From paper to pixel to voxel. Flat paper was cut and folded into a cube then photographed in three dimensional space to create a stop-motion animation. The animation was edited in software along three axes to transform it back into three dimensions and then distorted and duplicated to occupy space and time in various orientations. The entire animation was then altered over time, so that any side of the original cube visually informs the other sides of itself at the same time. Therefore, the simple piece of paper went from 2-Dimensions to 3-Dimensions to 4-Dimensions and again to 2-D to 3-D to 4-D. Now that the video is rendered and playing on a tiny screen it is 2-D again just like the original paper.
