Celestial Dynamics: A Short Film of Celestial MotionJune 3rd, 2013
Celestial Dynamics is a lovely short film by Kim Taylor, takes us through a journey across the stars and heavens through antiquated astronomical diagrams. As Taylor describes it, “I unearthed some dusty old scientific textbooks in my father’s attic, and immediately became inspired by the delicately rendered diagrams, plots and schemata. These purely scientific visual aids became unwitting artworks on their own, which is something I really loved. The short animation explores pathways through astronomy’s roots, dating back to antiquity with its origins in scientific, mythological and astrological practices.”
The music is Frosti by Bjork.
