My Idea is based on the Twirling Dervishes, which is a form of reli-gious meditation from Turkey. The story behind it and why theypractice it, is about a mystical dancer who stands between the ma-terial and cosmic worlds. His dance is part of a sacred ceremony inwhich the Dervish rotates in a precise rhythm on the spot. He rep-resents the earth revolving on its axis while orbiting the sun. Onehand facing upwards and one hand face down, representing thebody taking from "Allah" and giving to people. The purpose of theritual whirling is for the Dervish to empty himself of all distractingthoughts, placing him in a trance; released from his body he con-quers dizziness, and overall loses all distraction in the world. Help-ing him focus on love, unity and an understanding for all the thingson this earth.
I want to create a short animation, because unlike my previousprojects, I wanted something to be in motion rather than a staticproduction. This is because I think within an animation I canexpress myself more, and create a sequence of visually excitinganimation for people to watch and experience individually. Iwant to make this animation very abstract & colourful, yet have adistinct meaning running through it. This will be shown by usingvisual implications of colour and metaphor of the story andshapes to resemble the actions of the Dervish Whirling which willbe expressed with combinations of rotational mannerkaleidoscope effects, all together using Cg and 2D animation, toexplain the Dervish story.
