Still water, the physical world ends and gives way to a fluid mystery. Water is a symbol in many cultures of deep knowledge, a conduit of energy between worlds, and an entrance to worlds beyond. These are not mirrors, but doorways. This seems to be a continuation of the other work I’ve been doing this month during my time off.
This is a revised version of Sleep//Dream made for an installation piece at the second annual Sound.Motion show at Ringling College of Art & Design. The sleep and dream imagery is used in conjunction with original poetry read and digitally manipulated by the computer. The installation was titled “Digital Dream” and featured the projected video piece; a reactive audio oscilloscope; taxidermy of coyotes, a fox, and a deer; a still life of vase and artificial flowers, crushed velvet, and an original painting.
Seance Series: Faux Tintypes
As discussed in a previous post, these are the dusty scans of the final result of my faux tintype project. These were made by making the images with a flatbed scanner, then printing them as digital negatives, then printing the negs on matte-black painted metal sheet coated with AG Plus emulsion. *catches breath*
The variation in colour is due to fluctuations in emulsion temperature when the plates were coated/drying.
The images are inspired by spirit photography and the tradition of the seance.
This is a short experimental performance video that I made for a class exercise. The music was created with a broken violin + digital editing.
Personal work during my time off. Trying to reinvent the way I look at the space around my apartment.
From a general compositing project. Sacred dream landscapes made from stock images.
Art School Propaganda
For an ad campaign assignment. Fun stuff.
This was my final for a class based around digital compositing/manipulation. The “panorama” is actually made from five HDR images from five different locations, stitched together by hand, with the figures and other elements composited digitally. Conceptually, make of it what you will. Full view is juicier.
