For week 1 of Magic Windows, we were assigned to create an animated gif of an object that could be held or placed next to you, and that means something to you and/or represents you in some way.
I chose to create a stop-motion Play-Doh man. He curls up into a ball, uncurls, and shimmies. Yes, this is actual stop-motion animation— I built this Play-Doh man and photographed him a bunch of times in each pose before uploading to Photoshop and creating a looping gif. Here he is:
This action is representative of my varying moods, where I am sometimes very reserved and kept to myself (ball form), and other times gregarious and demonstrative (shimmy form).
