I was asked to create a .gif of a house interior during an earthquake. The article chronicles the controversial aftermath of the devastating quake that happened in L’Aquila, Italy in 2009.I wanted to capture the movement of the “tremors” before the full-on earthquake, although this tremor is infinite, never resolving. This image and the all the animation was made in Photoshop. thanks AD Erich Nagler!
