All of my drawing projects are made up of multiple drawings, usually of the same subject. When I finish a project I scan the completed drawings and use these sets to create simple QuickTime movies.
Here’s a QuickTime sketch of one of the videos I’d like to use in a new installation. Each of the videos I include will run continuously and be projected within a circular shape, as shown in the sketch included in my previous post.
I’ve been creating simple videos with digital scans of my drawings for some time. These videos allow me to represent sets of multiple images within a time-based framework. Recently I’ve been considering ways to combine a number of these video animations within a single installation. Here’s one of my Photoshop “sketches.” I imagine the grey area as a large screen (e.g. 8.5 x 14′), with the looping videos projected from behind.
As noted elsewhere on this blog I’m interested in moving the drawn images into a time-based digital format. Doing so opens up new possibilities for their presentation. I want to explore how meaning is expressed through duration.
This QuickTime movie of a series of watercolour drawings of a baby’s face is part of an ongoing project: Baby.
I’m back at work on the video project that makes use of a set of drawings of my mother’s face I produced between 2001 and 2003. The drawings have been scanned as digital files, which interdisciplinary artist Cindy Mochizuki is helping me process using AfterAffects.
I’m working with artist/sound designer Emma Hendrix to orchestrate a sound track that integrates a voice over narrative, the sound of a scanner and tuneless humming. These elements will be combined and processed through a range of filters and other special effects.
I’m back to work on a video that makes use of some of my Reunion drawings. These hand-drawn facsimiles of word processed text are excerpts from the voice over narrative. I’m interested in how these drawings function in a territory between hand-drawn and mechanical, writing and image.
