I'm an animation student at the Pacific Northwest College of Art in Portland, Oregon.
My thesis is about the study of animation. I propose that the classical idea of animation is based on the study of biomechanics and motion. Many animated works throughout history utilize tools like the rotoscope in order to give their cartoons natural human-like appearance and motion. My thesis is to create a work which involves the viewer through live video feed (using Modul8) to show not just the biomechanics of animation, but the physiological processes of energy production which enable biomechanics to happen (cell metabolism, ATP synthesis, oxidation, etc.)
If anybody knows any works that also focus on this subject, I would love to see them!
