Face with a lot of pictures – level 3

13-04-2023 15:00

Emma Allen, a British artist from London, took over 750 photographs after changing her face paint each time.

She then created a stop-motion animation from the pictures, i.e. showing the pictures in a video at high speed to give the impression of movement.

The artwork called Ruby is about rebirth and the transfer of energy, and it took Emma five days to create, working 17 hours a day.

Difficult words: impression (feeling).

You can watch the video news lower on this page.

What message do you think Emma wanted to convey with her artwork Ruby?
