Face with a lot of pictures – level 2

13-04-2023 15:00

A British artist created an animation. She painted her face and took a picture of it. She repeated this process over 750 times. She changed her face paint a little each time. The pictures were then played at high speed.

The artist worked 17 hours a day for five days to create the piece. The artwork is called Ruby and it is about rebirth and the transfer of energy.

Difficult words: rebirth (when something becomes alive again after dying).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.

What message do you think the artist is trying to convey with her artwork Ruby?
