FEMME FATALE – XXXX MAGAZINE ISSUE 1

FEMME FATALE

Femme Fatale (1:34) features the artwork of contemporary artist & illustrator Gene Romero. The animated visualization is accompanied by music by Moby. ¬†Inspired by the concept of Kaleidoscopic, Romero brings the viewer into his imagination. He allows for a new concept of “live” art to unfold by breaking down the creative process and allowing it to be redeveloped as a digital artwork animation.¬†Animation by Emilie Ye Ji Koo for XXXX Magazine.
