Synopsis

I am a Horse
I am a horse was a sculpture by David Salkeld. Derived from Halysites and siderite fossilised corral, which is expressed in a delightful free flowing ocean like style in its sense of play and movement.

The project was to recreate the sculpture as something new - an experimental animation. Working with the sculptor to recreate I am a horse in 3D animation as close as possible to the original sculpture, where the allusion of complex interlocking shapes was created out of one solid piece of wood in a series of components forming the impression of a horse.

The animation depicts the the sculpture forming out of the coral and fossilised formations and sea, and will express the natural flow of the shapes and sense of fun of the original design, before dissolving back into the sea.
