Tamás Waliczky: Swinging in the Garden, 2021

Our garden in Budapest inspires me again and again. In year 2000 I combined several of its flowers, trees, bushes into one organic, continuously growing plant in my “Aquarelle 2000” interactive artwork. Later with my partner and my daughter we made photo series of each other and the surrounding plants in the garden. The result was “Reflections” (2014) video installation.
In this computer animation I display once more the vegetation of our garden. Recently a swing was installed into the garden. I imagined how a child will swing in it and watch the trees and flowers. Up and down. Once a dark detail of the bottom of a bush will be visible, once the bright leaves at the top of a tree.
The photos were taken with a Nikon 800D camera and a special PC-E Micro NIKKOR 85mm f/2.8D shift and tilt lens. I converted the photos to 3D objects and the animation was made with a 3D software.
