Project 6: Animate the Internet

Project 6:  Animate the Internet

Length: 5 seconds, 60 frames
Timeframe: One Week, Due at the beginning of class on October 30th

How do you illustrate the idea of a system? How do you translate abstract concepts into concrete ones?

For this assignment you will consider how the internet works and how it functions as a system. You are free to be as literal or as wild as you want. If the internet is made of electronic signals connected by computers, super! If the internet is made up of only cats, great! If the internet is just a rock, in a field, on a sunny day, yipee! If the internet is just an empty space for five seconds, no, don’t do that. You can consider your personal relationship with the internet, how society interacts with the internet, or investigate a specific cultural perspective of the internet. We will combine all of these films together to create a long form animation from all your work.
