On October 25th the exhibition “Re:New” (Curated by myself and Jeff Hantman) opened at Lost & Foundry Gallery. The show featured works produced by former Artists in Residence at Recology after they had completed their residencies.
I’ve uploaded a slideshow of the event here: Re:New at Lost & Foundry, October 2014
If you’re in the vicinity of Ephraim Utah, I’ll have a piece in this show, opening Friday November 14th.
“Modern man has always been fascinated by mechanized modes of transportation. From the invention of the wheel to the first space flight, the compulsion to travel further, higher, faster, deeper has resulted in a multitude of mechanized vehicles and vessels. This exhibition explores the obsession to motate, and showcases assemblage contraptions which reinterpret modes of transportation on land, in the air, and at sea. The exhibition includes both unique visions of 2D collage and 3D assemblage work.”
I finally have a few more short screen tests of the tiny animation armatures I’ve been working on. These little guys have been incredibly challenging for a number of reasons, but its worth it to see them come alive on screen. Despite all the hours invested so far, I’ve still only spent a few of them actually behind the camera so there is still much to be learned about the actual art of animation. Up to this point I’ve been focusing on miniaturizing my process and learning how to produce reliable linkages between the parts that will allow for a nice range of motion. Up next is further study of the pacing and strategy required with the camera work to produce smooth, lifelike motion. As you can see in these clips, things are still pretty choppy.
