A music video treatment I wrote with my BirdmachineBird partner , Traci Goudie for The Lumineers band. The idea was that an amorphous shape traveled throughout the video and interacted with the band members , freezing ghostly shapes of whatever it passed in front of . I wanted to illustrate how one would interact with something like this so I created a static shape (quick and easy) , half of the screen, and used Max / Jitter to create this simple patch.
This is an example of how I use traditional oil painting techniques with digital processes to create a work . Often more than one piece is created as a result of mixing paintings with digital images.
The Image 1 is an oil painting "created" from image 2. Image 2 is a digital print and dye based pigments created from a stage in image 1's development. I used 2 pieces and their distinctive processes (animation, painting, sound interaction, technology distortion) to interact and relate with each other to create the "Frozen under powerlines series"
to quote from an earlier blog, "" This is a piece using electrical "white noise",EMF's, as an inspirational and direct input source point to manipulate the images. We live in a world enveloped by a sphere of unseen information. Myriads of signals pass through us daily through orbiting satellites , cell phones and power grids to radio waves and LCD monitors...... how does this effect us, physiologically and spiritually?"
this is a new piece that is hanging at the Woodstock
Framing Gallery in Woodstock, NY; in a show curated by Norm Magnusson
on the subject of copyright law and fair use.
As far as the piece, I'll explain it just a bit because my
process can be understood as the ﬂip-side of the curated
subject matter witch is "Fair Use".
I used a photograph of!!Iconic Pop star Lady Gaga!taken by
the great Artist Bart Hess . Then I wrote a software patch
that takes algorithms from Madonnas song Vogue (used for
free via Pandora.com) and then used the amplitude as an
information input to create digital distortions along to the
music in real time.
I then recorded those distortion animations and saved them
as .mov ﬁles , turning the still image into a movie. I went
through the still frames of the movie and selected one. I
then made plastic layers of digital prints and paintings with
dye based pigments and alcohol. framed it and backlit it.
The piece is titled:
