FROM DIRT TO DIAMOND
The installation ‘FROM DIRT TO DIAMOND’ is an interactive object that takes its inspiration from the early days of animation, the Praxinoscope. The mirrors of the Praxinoscope are shaped into a giant diamond. this diamond will not only reflect the images of the animation, but also mirror the lights lighting up the animation. This will create a mirrorball like effect on its surroundings.
The animation on display will be created by a Singaporean cartoonist upon selection from the local talent pool provided by Cartoon Underground.
The installation will invite people to operate the Praxinoscope manually by rotating a handle, which in turn rotates the mirror diamond. The lights lighting up the animation and mirror diamond will be solar powered.
