Motion Video George Heriot

Digital video Scotland Tartan design video wall for Apex Hotels, split over 3 HD flat panel displays.

A collection of 1 minute digital video tartan design backdrops (series of 20). Each piece slowly builds from the core tartan design by animating the tartan pattern warp & wefts (the vertical and horizontal lines that interweave to form the overall design).

Each tartan is associated with a famous Scottish person, ranging from inventors to comedians. The final pieces have a description overlayed with tartan name, famous person & their accolade.
