The Making of Brown and Orange Polyp #1

The following is a short stop action video I made of one of my "polyp" art pieces being assembled. Over the coarse of several months I made the close to two hundred tubes which comprise this 2' x 2' art piece. Over the course of a day, I assembled this piece taking a picture for each piece I added to the assemblage. 

Not having a studio or much money means I have to get by on a shoestring budget. I used a regular point and shoot "tourist" camera, a couple of natural light light-bulbs, and some poster board for a background. The change in light near the last quarter of the video is when I closed the garage door do the sun setting.
