If you attended Complex Weavers Seminars this past September in Chevy Chase, MD, you may remember the video "The Boob Tube Hour," created to complement the noon lecture by Edward Meader: "The Rise and Fall of the Female Breast." The video was a compilation of work by several CW members, and in the process of assembling it, I did a short woven animation as my segment of the project. It was a lot of work, and at the time of the presentation it all went by in the blink of an eye. So before letting it die a natural death, I decided to abstract my portion and create a very short separate video for posterity.
I designed eight separate panels, based on a Photoshop checkerboard image with a grayscale bump map applied. These eight panels were woven in doubleweave on my TC-1 in black and white mercerized cotton, scanned, then sequenced in Photo to Movie software for the animation. I think the effect resembles a heaving bosom, the kind you might see on the cover of a romance novel. At least that was my intention. I hope you enjoy it. Pass the popcorn.
