Take inspiration from the themes of RAMM’s ‘Criminal Ornamentation’ exhibition to design your own relief plate and create a series of prints to turn into a fun digital animation with artist Tanya Morel.
Develop your ideas through some simple drawing/mark-making, and convert them into a relief plate using card and foam. You will then ink up the plate using rollers to create a series of prints on paper. Photograph the finished prints to put onto the computer using an animation programme to convert into your own short animated film.
See examples of print animations made in this way on Vimeo.
