This is a sample of animations that were a part of various installations and some background
Sub Cell is an animation loop, projected from the gut of a cement and wax sculpture. It concerns the primordial soup theory; the where and the life began on earth. The motion followed the motion of division and cloning pace of cells inside a petri dish. the drawings are of architectural parts and drawn with a quill pen.
An animation created for the solo show, The Red Queen in 2013. It was projected over a sculpture of a wasps nest, hung over deserted lab bench. Here is the story behind the installation:
A once abandoned laboratory is now inhabited by a wasp’s nest.
Drawing from the “Red Queen’s hypothesis,” (Van Valen,
1973) principle of constant transformation as a crucial tool in evolutionary development, Nivi Alroy
creates a symbiotic environment, where one life form is simultaneously dependent but also
threatens the other. Animated organisms are bursting out of an old scientific laboratory, touched
by time, bringing to mind the collision point between artificially induced life and natural habitat. (Shown in a 90 degree angle)
An animation loop by Nivi Alroy, Originally created for the solo show Food Chain, curated by Tami Katz Freiman,
as part of the Ahuvi most promising artist award show at the Fresh Paint art fair. The elements were hand drawn with a quill pen, and the animation followed the motion of a drop of water, shot in slow motion.
The movie was projected as a part of a video- installation in a dark hallway and could only be seen through a peeping hole. Along the years, It was also projected over a bridge, a bath tub, a five story building and more.
