Hermes window display animation

February 3, 2009

This is the first of a couple of commercial projects I’ve been working which has employed my ‘zeno’ animation system programmed in Processing.

I was commissioned to create a looped animation by Lucy-Ann Bouwman at Sightgeist Design as part of a Christmas window display for Hermes.  Images relating to products and the window display design were integrated into the animation.
