CSUEB Electronic Art Seniors share their thoughts!

Motion Silhouette

So we all know how much I love a good pop-up, which is a lot. Earlier this quarter Janet Green sent me a link to this artist who has created a type of pop-up I have never seen before. He calls them motion silhouettes but in the simplest terms they are pop-up book pages that cast a dynamic shadow that alters the background image. Each page has two separate background images and the cast shadow from the pop-up interacts differently with each image.

Check out the book here and watch the videos

I loved the simplicity of his designs and would love to incorporate this idea but with a lot more color. It also inspired parts of my senior project with that I wanted to have an interactivity element to the pop-ups in the invitations.
