The Clover Leaf

Category: ‘The Loop’ – Global Video Competition

The Clover Leaf

This video is comprised of 4 stop motion animations that were sourced by taking screen shots of google street view. The video contains 5 laps around a cloverleaf on ramp/off ramp with each of the 4 camera angles focused on a cardinal direction and rotated to its proper orientation on a map.

This video breaks two systems with defined and expected uses. The physical system of circulation through roads and highways is challenged when the video is looped. It becomes an action that was never intended by city planners and civil engineers.

The second is the intended use for google street view, a tool used for way-finding and locating destinations. By compiling the 360 degree pictures in a loop, these static images become an animated video that was never intended to be made.
