David Crawford presents a series of stop motion studies, photographed in in the Tokyo subway one in the course of one morning.
In these photographs, the body language of the subjects becomes the basic syntax for a series of animations exploring movement, gesture, and algorithmic montage. The Stop Motion Studies extend my long-standing interest in narrative and, in particular, look at the subway as a stage upon which social dynamics and individual behavior are increasingly mediated by digital technology.
Mkay. I'm sure it has nothing to do with the fun of snapping pictures of people sleeping.
