The tripping picture

The exploration of this sparked from a state of delirium and staring too long at a particular photo. At the peak of an inebriated session one day, I stared too long at this photo. It was quite an unremarkable photo at first, depicting the back of a person taking a piss, that I had captured but a few weeks earlier.


It was either the tiles in the background, the lack of sleep, the fuzz in my brain or a heady combination of them all, but the photo began to move. 

Here are some attempts to bring the photo to life in after effects

The project culminated in the creation of an interactive 2.5D experience done using webGL based on a codepen by Robin Delaporte
