For my hybrid forms, I have chosen to use cinemagraphs. These are created using a high quality video, and animating a small part of that video in post production to create a still image with a looping element.
There is no specific motivation or message behind cinemagraphs, as they are simply created to be interesting pieces of art. Some of the works end up looking creepy and disturbing, while other focus on a element of an environment you may not have noticed before. It is definitely art, and therefore it doesn’t have a particular ‘use’ as such, but is an experiment to cross photography with videography. Cinemgraphs are a recent phenomena, and are produced by many different people and so I haven’t chosen a specific artist, but rather a collection of some of the best.
