the last few months

i've been working on this...conceptually i'm pleased, and i got the type of response i wanted from the critique today, but i'm still desirous of more from the content. i have directions in mind, but any discussion is great.

anyhow, here i present you with a video painting. ideally hung on the wall in a flat panel LCD TV, but also well suited for high resolution viewing on your computer screen: transformation of utility, reconceptualizing motion.

Edit: Actually, I kind of forget I've been working on this project for a while since it was interrupted by frustration with my tools. This other video is done with photoshop, as opposed to layering photographic elements, but is built on the same notion. I made this video painting during the summer of '04. I have other attempts as well, but they haven't been finished, and may need to come after the paint based model.

I am now exceedingly annoyed at the crappiness of mplayer's loop function, but I like this.

The videos aren't working.

er, sorry there's no progress bar. they aren't that large, so estimate your wait?

anyone have ideas on why it might not be showing download progress?

nice work. i really like the paint texture. lots of cool possibilities here. the digital one is neat but could be developed. i like the dancing smudges.

here's a collaboration piece i did for school along similar lines. ink/paint/source photo done by classmates. i just made it move.

Yeah, I stopped working on the digital one because at that point my computer was causing it to take too long just to get one frame worked on, so I haven't done anything to it in a long time. The paint is my first attempt in a while to work on this sort of short frame cycling. I feel like the frames are so quickly displayed and repeated that there's an almost simultaneous feel to it that is lost with cinema or even video. I need to keep working on more of these things...

I have the idea to create a huge wrap for a carousel and then place a wall between the carousel and the viewer to create a huge cinematic loop, but it changes the social and physical positioning of the work quite a bit. Still a neat thought.

both of those pieces are simply beautiful. the first one made me feel a bit dizzy, but that may be just me cause i get motion sickness way too easily.

Congratulations on being done!
