The temporal construct consists of regularly spaced elements whose varying shape illustrates movement. In this animation I attempted to challenge the rhythm/repetition by animating the focal length of the camera. The construct does not move but the focal length starts wide (about 100 degrees) and ends narrow (about 40 degrees) compressing the apparent distance between the parts of the construct in relation to time. By leaving the construct at rest and animating I was attempting to emphasize that the “medium between the observer and the visible object as the reality of visual experience.” (Perez-Gomez)

The path and placement of the viewpoint was intended to subvert the reading of frame by putting the center/edge in motion. The viewpoint constantly shifts from one side, to the other side and from inside to outside causing the orientation of the frame to shift similarly.
