“Inner Space Artifacts” by Ben Ridgway (previously) is an experimental animation featuring “artifacts from inner space transformed into moving digital sculptures.” The pulsating movement of the artifacts gives them an organic feel.
When creating experimental animations I often use intuition and visualization techniques to come up with ideas. Often times these ideas come to me as a flash of insight. Other times I must plumb the depths of my psyche to find novel approaches to making moving images. The film “Inner Space Artifacts” was a journey of deep excavation into the world of abstract ideas. The moving objects in the animation I regard as “artifacts” that I uncovered and shaped into ephemeral moving digital sculptures.
A series of aluminum and bronze sculptures of egg artifacts in the film are available for purchase on his website.
