Layers Brief, final outcome animations

For this brief I did a lot of experimenting and created some physical pictures as well as these little animations.
The original idea was to show them in an enclosed space such as a photo booth or a screened off little room.
I also like the idea of having a bit of music to go along with it but then I thought it would be fun to see what music other people would think of when they saw them and then play around with that somehow.
I originally did them as PDF presentations which is great because they can be full size but unfortunately they are not uploadable.
I will add them as I convert them from pdf to gif but I am having some trouble as they seem to be really large files.. here are some of the pictures and stills from the animations to look at in the meantime:


these are a few stills from two of the slideshows I did, I made 6 in total and used a range of photographs I have taken over the years combining the urban and derelict with the rural and pristine as well as some xrays of myself and bits and pieces of other relevant stuff. It is a sort of self portrait thinking about how we construct layers in ourselves over time and build upon old ideals and priorites with new ones or just smash them down and start again. It refers to the dreams and how jumbles of past and present occur in them.
Ultimately the viewer will be able to see what he or she wants to see and hopefully find a way to relate the concept to their own lives.
