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.

Untitled Video Painting #01 (1024x768, < 1 sec - 8.5Mb)

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.

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.
