Red Swan

I recently dug through my photos and videos from my February Amsterdam trip and I found this video of a swan floating in a canal in the Red Light District.

I knew I wanted to do something abstract with it, so I sized down the video to a tiny resolution and then exported it from Adobe Encoder as a sequence of TIFFs. I sized up the TIFFs in Photoshop keeping the edges of the pixels sharp for a reason, and composed a video out of them in Premiere. The single frames themselves seemed quite interesting to me so I took one of them and made a conventional poster out of it. The goes to show that inspiration hits random sometimes, but it can lead to intriguing places.
