Filpbook Process Statement
I thought the Flipbook project was both challenging and enjoyable. My process began with simple research about flipbooks.
I had never made one before and although I understood the concept of multiple drawings I had nothing else to be inspired by. Many websites and tutorials proved helpful online, giving tips and triggering ideas for my own flipbook. Humor is something I hardly ever am drawn to in works of art but in the flipbook
project, I wanted to experiement with humorous ideas. However as time went on and I worked on my own book, I realized how interesting it was that within my small picture plane, there was a metamorphis of a landscape going on. Instead of focusing on figures acting within the landscape, I concentrated on the landscape itself as the subject. I find it interesting how my own "landscapes" change dramatically- from my bedroom to the East Bank Campus of the University of Minnesota to the entire Mississippi view
from the Witch's Tower in St. Paul. Through my flipbook, I wanted to examine the metamorphis of a landscape through both man-made and natural events over the course of time.
