This is a small animation I did as an exercise to experiment and explore all the graphical possibilities of representing the idea of the SPHERE, always thinking in searching Gestalt and form. Its all done in 3d, but i was more interested in the graphical interest, flatten the surfaces, and only two colors, why more.The most difficult was to achieve the transitions between the different type of representation of the sphere, the morphing and metamorphosing….
A true sphere is a troublesome object and representing it can be extremely challenging. This is not because we are unable to truly imagine or witness the object but because of its shape. Sometimes it’s easier to understand a sphere, by making it from other more tangible objects – have a look at Ion Lucin’s stunning video.
