❏ How MOTION can EXAGGERATE, ENHANCE, MANIPULATE the emotion of an image.

Method: Photo, Video, Cinemagraph

Motion+Time : Time based image.

Motion+Time+Space: Augmented reality (when motion+time & space meets together it makes another dimension of reality. I’m trying to discover that reality, that’s Augmented reality)

Motion+Time : Time based image.

Motion in relation with time in a video: SLOW MOTION                       FAST FORWARD

                                                                  BACKWARD-FORWARD        REPEATION.

In my observation Bill Viola plays a lot with time & motion in his video works. I feel it gives more scope to express the emotion of an image.

My experiment: Time based image


If photography is capturing a moment in a frame, Cinemagraph is manipulating that moment within the frame. In short “Manipulating the time”

In this series I have captured some moment form the daily life of South Asian village people. 

Cinemagraphs is born out of a need to tell a story in a fast digital age.

Experiment-01.1: Village people.

Experiment-01.2: Riverside people.
