Video and Digital Art

This week, I started a new class called Computers in Visual Art. It’s really interesting to explore the ways technology opens so many doors for artists. There are limits to pen and paper, as weird as that sounds to me. I think one of the biggest advantages of art technology is video. Movement can be expanded on and used in new ways through video.

The above video, entitled Decay, is incredible. The music, the movement, the human silhouettes and the images of nature all combine into a unique experience. It expresses an incredible amount of melancholy and tells a story without even sharing a word.
