An Art Animation experimental using 3d and black white as the media and surrealism as the style, inspired by Destino, an art animation created by Salvador Dali and Walt Disney.
I tried to experiment with using animation to convey the meaning of my theme, which is about the relationship between two different points of view. How the two very different views (exemplified by extreme conditions) are related and how they can find the end, namely harmony, which is maybe the beginning of another relationship.
In all relationships we can see that there will be conflicts in it, the conflict is seen as a barrier, as a dead end, but knowing the conflict is one step towards resolving it. When it is finished we should be able to better understand the conflicting relationship better, more calmly, and more completely. By understanding it we can open our eyes to the wider, get us out of the trap of endless conflict, that the two are one.
Animation like video has an element that is not shared by media such as painting and sculpture, namely motion, but compared to video itself, animation has the advantage of stronger control over each frame it appears. How to use mobile as media to define ideas, as well as dimensions (2d and 3d animation) must also be used precisely and clearly.
Due to the lack of using animation as a medium in art especially in Indonesia , I see opportunities to explore these media, maybe because animation requires a lot of disciplines both in terms of art, concept, or execution itself, but it provides many opportunities for artists to work. Animation itself has quite a lot of applications in this day and age so that it becomes a good foundation for being able to integrate it with other technologies such as VR or AR.
I created the "Black and White Harmony" animation as an experiment to use animation media in work not only for entertainment but also to convey our vision in a good and appropriate style, hopefully it can be a reference for those who want to use animation media to create art in order to understand it further.
