Morning Glory is a single channel video that takes the viewer on a journey into the heart of a single morning glory flower. The piece starts with a view of the entire flower against the back drop of a flower bed. As the camera moves deeper into the interior a strange world is revealed in which the internal structures of the flower appear to take on a life of their own. Eventually one of these reveals a scene within a scene - the viewer enters a picturesque landscape as depicted on a decorative plate.
This video piece was created using 2D and 2.5D animation of images of a number of morning glory blossoms made at McEvoy Ranch in Marin Co., CA. The plate was manufactured by Josiah Wedgwood. The music used in this piece is "Passacaglia for solo lute" composed by Heinrich Biber, performed by Nigel North and the Romanesca Trio.
