Animation Complete!

I have finally finished animating 'A Future Colour Duathlon' as my final outcome for Nike78.

I challenged the function of my Nikes through an investigation into making alternative use of the shoe (other than wearing it).
I got a little bit involved with the shapes associated with a triathlon (after reading a triathlon magazine) and also the shapes within the form of the trainers before and after I had meddled with them.

The outcome of my Nike 78 project takes inspiration from everything documented in this blog and the very important key words listed below, to create a really rather pointless (but very fun) animation.

Very important key words include:

Chief Babatunde
Colour Trails

I won't post the animation just yet until the projects have been posted on the Nike78 website.
But then you will be able to see the full 1 minute of silly colour fun in all its pointless glory. Come back soon!

Electric Shocks

After some minor delays due to broken down computers, I am back on track with the making of my animation for the outcome of my Nike78 project.
Almost finished, here is a peek at some stills from it so far.

Today I Will Make An Animation

I am going to make a short animation incorporating all the shapes, colours and fun ideas I have discovered through the study of my pair of Nike trainers.

The first things to do is collect the shapes I associate with these 2 categories:

My Nikes + Duathlon (Running + Cycling)

These are some of them.

Chief Babatunde

I put my Nikes on Chief Babatunde so he could stand in the garden. They fit him better than me anyway.

"If you have a body, you are an athlete"

Today I tried to make my dog wear my Nike trainers, but she was having none of it. She's silly.

My pair of Nikes are not functional to me for their intended purpose because they are massive and if I wore them to go for a run or a bike ride or to do long jump in, I would surely fall flat on my face. Discovering a new purpose for them is my main objective.
Keeping sport in mind.

My Pair

These are my pair of Nike Shoes . They are very big (size 9.5) and silver. They look space-like and futuristic, a bit like a vision that someone had in 1978 when asked the question "What do you think trainers will look like in 2010?"
