For this project, we were asked to explore actions that we do habitually.  I explored this idea by analyzing my room, somewhere I spend a good amount of time.  One thing that I do every single day is filter through my wardrobe to see what costume I will put on that day.  If I am getting ready for a dinner, outing, or any event besides going to class, I will take a while to figure out what to wear.  Instead of taking a video and converting it to still images on Photoshop, I used the action mode on my camera to get as many shots within the moment.  To capture that essence of time within a gif that is constantly looping, I added a time-lapse of a clock, adjacent to the hands filtering through the clothes.  The original idea was to overlay the clock on top of the clothing gif using an opacity setting to see through that first layer.  However, I felt that having the clock in bold adjacent to the other image gave the time a stronger presence within the animation.

It creates a feeling of stress and rush that is very relatable when getting ready.
