Dani Wolf —That’s It & Disform 2012
Posted on August 7, 2012
Dani Wolf communicates by morphing text and shape through sophisticated animation.
The text is taken from the book “Happier: Learn the Secrets to Daily Joy and Lasting Fulfillment”, written by Dr. Tal Ben-Shahar. My goal was to present this “self-improvement” text in a way that the viewer will not feel cynical towards it. Another goal of this project, led by Erez Gavish, was to examine the matter of readability in motion, by introducing exceptional ways of reading and testing their boundaries.”
The signage system of the alternative music festival DISFORM 2012 has two purposes: to direct the audience, informing where each area is located; and to enrich the whole experience of the festival itself, by creating an engaging dialogue between the signs and their surroundings.
The animation and the editing are directly affected by the live music performances, using OpenGL technology. The additional layer of information is dynamic and updated in real-time in order to help the audience of the festival.
