Louise Levergneux: "Outside of the Studio is a photographic documentation and a study in movement and time featuring the four basic elements: Fire, Air, Earth and Water. This flip book project was created throughout the year 2012 and published in a weekly edition.

"The idea came from the artist's fascination with 'thumb theatre' books and the curiosity of using different softwares to create them.

"The idea of using time-collapse photography in a flip book format seemed like lots of fun. The flip book genre is enjoyable probably because the interaction reveals something the static book does not.

"So, starting with a short video of every day scenes representing the elements, the artist then imported the video into iMovie, then played with the speed and the duration till the video was able to be imported in layers in Photoshop. Once in Photoshop the layers, when needed were cropped and edited then placed in a Photoshop template file for printing. All the flip books went through the same process."
