Grégoire Dupond's 'Piranesi Carceri d'Invenzione'Illustration // Friday, 02 Nov 2012
Etchings and architecture come to life in this rad animation by Grégoire Dupond.
'I made this animation film based on Piranesi's Carceri d'Invenzione prints as a walk through these amazing spaces.
I used camera mapping (Projection Man) and camera animation with Maxon's Cinema4D, building 6 different scenes that were merged together in a single continuous animation.
The film was made and produced by myself for Factum Arte (Madrid) who supported me in making this film and the Fondazione Giorgio Cini (Venezia) who provided scans of their own print collection, for an exhibition about Piranesi that took place in San Giorgio Maggiore, Venezia, in 2010/2011. The exhibition will be showing in Spain, Madrid and Barcelona, in 2012 before going to the US, and beyond.'
