Over the course of the semester and the art 610 class, I plan on assembling a series of works that merge the analog arts with the digital arts taking the form of storyboarding and animation. By using canvas, oil paint, digital photography, and projection I hope to tell the story of a myth. This exploration is a means to learn and discover ways of merging the more classically considered finearts with the technical digital arts. The individual storyboarding cells will be individual canvases which will be photographed or scanned, then compiled into a film that will show the progressions between the canvases.
The myth or story that will be used to explore this media compilation has yet to be decided on, or possibly created; it should follow some element of humanity, as most myths do, and may be told in writing form with evidence shown through the video. Using the inspiration of another artist work regarding the documentation of a monster she created, this series may be presented as evidence of a myth or monster in relation to the ‘Pele’s Curse.
The materials that will be used will be: stretched canvas for painting on, oil paints, clay and stone,digital camera or scanner, projector, painted canvas to be projected onto, laptop and software.
