Anyway, the whole idea is a bit crafty and childish rather than designerly and awesome (which are two criteria I try and make all my work fit) so after a full 5 hours sleep, 3 hours of trawling my memory and the internet for some inspiration and 2 slices of toast I remembered some animations made by design firm HunterGatherer and quite like the idea of using paper to do something more like this or this. I really like the second of those two videos and think that a paper version could go quite well. I first came across HunterGatherer whilst trying to find a snazzy case for my laptop and their woodgrain cases looked super cool. Unfortunately I couldn't get one in the UK at the time so I shall have to settle for using their ideas rather than their products.
The idea of geometric paper shapes also allows me to use my paper pyramid things I have been playing with recently. Here is an example of a rough I made whilst mocking up a birthday card I made for my sister, the pyramid had another paper pyramid inside, and inside that was the message 'your face smells like poop'. She is 26 and a doctor but still appreciates a poop joke. I worry about her
The next 6 or so hours shall see me raiding my room for any coloured, textured or random paper and turning it into various shapes, i may even attempt to make myself a tune to go along with the animation in garageband.
Ill post again later with some images.
