Year of Invention: 2014

Description:
The swatch is layered lights, illustrations, and switches. I have combined traditional animation techniques, parallel circuit switches and LEDs to create the sense of live animation. When you activate the switches in sequence the LEDs light up to reveal a sequence of frames, and have the feeling of being animated. When making this I was experimenting with ways of visual storytelling, the idea behind it is to create a sense of connection between the material and the person using it.
