The Infinite Now

The Infinite Now

Waves of the Ocean shown as a hybrid between photo and video – an infinite loop that makes a single moment last forever.

With the expertise of my co-creator Armand Djicks we have blended photography and video into cinemagraphs.

The illusion of movement is created by painstakingly overlaying the original images, one frame over the next, and playing them as a continuous slow-motion animation. The mesmerizing moving images detail the ocean’s myriad of colours and textures, as well as its immense power.

These cinemagraphs inspired André Heuvelman and Jeroen van Vliet from the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra to score a custom soundtrack for the piece.
